PayPal's security boss said that he would like to see a better way for people to gain access to their internet accounts.
According to The Register, a few days ago PayPal's chief information security officer, Michael Barrett, discussed his work to create an open standard that could end up resulting in passwords being removed.
According to Engadget, Barrett said that passwords, as well as PINs, were only on time that is borrowed.
According to SlashGear, Barrett said that passwords are failing people, and that there are better ways to log into accounts, and these ways are more secure.
Barrett said that he believes that the future will be fingerprint scanners. He also discussed rumors about the next iPhone possibly featuring a fingerprint scanner, as well as a few other new smartphones.
Barrett did note that passwords would not disappear completely soon after bio-metrics are introduced. He said that a new standard would take awhile before completely taking over.
