It is now possible to access your account without a password


It is no longer necessary to remember your password to access your Microsoft account. The American giant has announced that it has integrated a new option that allows you to use its services without having to remember a password, reports Lemon Juicer, this Thursday. This possibility was already open to professional users for several months.

“Use the Microsoft Authenticator app, Windows Hello, a security key or verification code sent to your phone or email to sign in to your favorite apps and services, such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft Family Safety , etc, ”explained Vasu Jakkal, corporate vice president, security, compliance and identity at Microsoft in a blog post.

An option not imposed, but highly recommended

If Microsoft does not intend to impose it on everyone, the company strongly recommends giving up its password. “With the exception of automatically generated passwords which are almost impossible to remember, we largely create our own passwords. But, given the vulnerability of passwords, their requirements have become increasingly complex in recent years, including several symbols, numbers, case sensitivity and prohibition of previous passwords, ”added Vasu Jakkal.

This new option without passwords proposed by Microsoft is therefore optional. In addition, it can be activated and deactivated at any time. To activate it, simply go to your Microsoft account. Once in the security options tab, you need to open “Advanced security options”. There you will see a button that allows you to activate the new service.
