A Life Without Passwords
How secure are passwords, really? According to Facebook, not enough that we need to keep them around. Facebook wants to do away with passwords – easily hacked, easily forgotten, not worth the trouble – and instead use something called Delegated Account Recovery, which will allow you to use your other social media to prove that you are who you say you are. While right now this would be used as a way to recover passwords, eventually Facebook wants to use it in the place of passwords – something they say will be safer and easier for everyone.
