Login usernames and passwords may be ending. A more secure login system known as Web Authentication is coming. This is an official login process at the Internet standards body, the World Wide Web Consortium (WWWC). It will be common in web browsers and platforms worldwide. It is simpler and stronger authentication. Users will log in securely to websites using either a digital device, biometrics (like fingerprints) or USB security keys.

The WWWC spoke about this. It said: "It's common knowledge that passwords have outlived their efficacy." It said stolen, weak or default passwords are behind 81 per cent of data breaches. It also said passwords are a waste of time and resources. Businesses should start Web Authentication to avoid the problem of weak passwords and to help improve security. This will reduce the risk of having passwords stolen.
