The Death of Passwords


Donald Wickelgren


May 5, 2023


We have so much invested in passwords. It's one of the hardest things we work at on a computer. Rules, timings and complexity are constantly changing, and frankly, I struggle to create a complex enough password as often as my company requires, let alone remember it a month later.

I look forward to a future where passwords are easier to manage... until I lose my phone and can't figure out how to access my email.
