Say goodbye to your passwords

The use of passwords in applications is as old as the computing architecture itself.

Such old technology, and widely used, obviously catches the attention of attackers.

Therefore, password is one of the most vulnerable technologies that we know of.

With that in mind, you, as a user or digital service provider, should be thinking about quitting passwords right away.

As a user, you can have several options such as multiple factor authentication or even two-step authentication.

As a digital service provider, your application should replace the password as an authentication method, applying more modern technologies such as OTP (one time password) or biometrics.

Technologies like FIDO, come to help us migrate to a happier path between users and systems.

Goodbye to passwords

In this video for the “Fique Seguro” channel, I talk about passwords, authentication factors, authentication models and how you, as a user, can store your passwords more securely.

This video was originally recorded in Brazilian Portuguese.

Do you realize how many different passwords you have had in your life and how many sites are still active, have some old password of yours?
