Preface: Every time I have to login into a website that asks me a password, I cringe. Password seems so primitive. Why do I have to remember hundred different passwords to hundred different websites? Why can’t I simply login to the website. If I am on a website, it should simply have a button on it that says, “Login”. The website should figure out if it’s my first time, or I am already registered. We need to re-imagine the security, access, and experience of on-boarding to a website that doesn’t require passwords.
Problem: Websites/Apps still use passwords as a login method that puts the onus on the user to remember the passwords.
Challenge: Design a system that uses a different authentication method not requiring users to remember hundred different passwords.
Please do no use Third party authentication, Password tools, etc. Re-Imagine the authentication.
