Here's what the owner of Comtrade wrote about this topic:
"Do you know that the most common password that people use is" 123456 "? Of course, there are personal names, names of family members, other combinations of numbers and the like. And then we wonder when we read the news about how hackers managed to fall into a computer network and steal private data. The problem of information security becomes greater as the number of Internet users, especially with mobile devices being used for various types of online transactions.
Education of the general population should be to take elementary precautions as one of the methods of protection. Another, perhaps more successful way is completely circumvent passwords. The problem with them is that, even when they are complex, people usually use them for many accounts, and "breaking" one portal automatically endangers all the others. Furthermore, despite encryption, they are usually kept on servers and are vulnerable while "traveling" through the network.
How to abolish passwords? Biometrics is definitely one of the better ways. Fingerprint readers on computers have been installed for more than a decade, but due to the inaccuracy of reading have not gained more popularity. The development of technology has led to the fact that you do not have to drag your finger across the sensor, which is the main source of imprecision mentioned, but that it is enough to lay your finger onto your reader.
Therefore, I expect that eventually, first on the phone, and then on the other devices, fingerprints will become the most common method of identification. After that we can expect a breakthrough in face recognitio, as such a solution exists but is relatively rarely used. Reading the retina of the eye is an even more reliable method based on a similar concept. Although both of these methods may involve problems and the possibility of "cheating" the system, it is still reduced to a minimum. Did you know that the second most common password used is "password". It is possible that faster than you expect this sort of thing to go into oblivion. "
