Microsoft Confirms Intent To Replace Windows 10 Passwords For 800 Million Users

Our ability to securely move beyond passwords as the singular trusted authentication mechanism has been here for some time, but concept and related technology has lacked traction.  I am excited to see Microsoft continue to endorse and partner with the FIDO Alliance to bring forward secure, alternative authentication options to the masses.

Please remember that even the best Microsoft Hello option is still often a single authentication factor.  For sensitive system access, multi-factor authentication is still the safest, most effective approach to authentication.
