According to representatives of Yahoo, the aim is to fully abolish passwords.
To its service for e-mail management, Yahoo has added the ability to login without password.
When you sign in instead of entering the password, the request is sent to the user’s smartphone where you need to grant the request. According to representatives of Yahoo, they aim to fully abolish passwords. In fact, security experts generally believe that the applications using passwords are insecure, and the new system is also safe on pages that do not use “safe” links.
To use the new system, called Account Key, the user must first log in to Yahoo mail in the usual way by entering a user name and password. Then the Account Key needs to be turned on and the smart phone registered. If a user loses his mobile phone, battery is empty, or for any reason it is not available, the e-mail can be accessed in the usual way, by entering a password.
