Passwords must disappear. That's what security advocates say. Just like credit cards, fridges that are unconnected to the super market and doors that lock with a key? In reality banks with low efforts in security are hacked and consumers don't really care. With the same consumer mindset we run companies. Security is a checkbox, not a critical part of your company. We just blame someone when it goes wrong and eat the costs.
In this blogpost you'll learn why that's a mistake in 2017. You'll see why passwords are not like fridges connected to the supermarket, but more like cassette tapes that are a waste of your time. You can write a blogpost on cassette nostalgia but we all know there are lots of better options to choose from: from Spotify to Apple Music to CD players. I'll review the best alternatives to passwords, so you can be the first to write a blogpost on password nostalgia.
