At the present time, still the process of logging in to websites requiring users to enter a password. This was the method adopted for a very long time, but it is not necessarily the most reliable method since it can break the passwords. However, it is possible to change that in the future because it was the launch of a new standard for web sites by the FIDO Alliance and the W3C that would allow for websites to adopt the means of biometric such as fingerprint and facial recognition to log in to the sites.

To be more specific, will be the new standard for websites approved users to log in through ways to free passwords. This includes biometrics as we mentioned earlier, along with cameras and USB keys as an alternative route. Given that the browser Firefox the new company, Mozilla is the only browser that supports this new standard, it is expected to be supported by both Google’s Chrome and Microsoft’s Edge in the next two months.

As announced Opera also expresses its commitment to this technology, this means unfortunately that the browser Safari of Apple is the only browser left that doesn’t support this new standard, or at least I didn’t know Apple announced its intention to do so. Given the extent of the impact of apple on biometric technologies, such as integrated feature of Face ID on the phone iPhone X and fingerprint recognition technology on the computers of the MacBook, it is surprising to see Apple is not quick in adopting this new standard.

However, this does not mean that he will get rid entirely of the passwords, but this new standard may mean that we’ll see more advanced options available to log on to websites in the future.
