We are living in such a digital world where we need to access dozens of websites each day. Dozens of websites mean dozens of usernames and passwords to remember. And remembering passwords is one of the toughest jobs especially in the case of me. I hate passwords. To avoid the complexity, I always prefer the same password for most of the websites I used to access or I choose a simple combination of some common passwords like “123456789”, “password”, password123” etc. But from a security point, using such passwords is not a healthy practice. But what can I do, I don’t want to remember hard passwords for websites I generally used to access.
Then I came to know about the technologies that helped me a lot to avoid passwords. Today, I want to share three great technologies that are very helpful to avoid the need of remembering too many passwords.
You are working in an organization where there are multiple websites that you need to access. Generally, we all create new usernames and passwords for each associated websites. This is very frustrating situation because you need to login separately on each website. This not only waste your time but also effort.
Single sign on saves you from the situation. By allowing you to enter one username and password, it gives you a permission to access all the websites that are related to the same organization. The technology improves productivity by saving user’s time. It also provides a unified customer view that is an important factor for businesses to know their customer.
It is also an important technology that avoids users from remembering passwords. With the help of this method user can login to a website by using his social media account. The method also saves user’s time by saving him from filling long and boring registration forms. With social sign-on, users can login to the website in one click of the mouse.
For businesses, it provides first-party data. And this is very important for them to make new and profit-making strategies.
The method of login to the website is easiest and quickest. You don’t even need to remember a single username and password. Just one touch and you get the access of a website. In biometric login, the system reads the thumb impression of the user and allows him to access services only if it matches to the impression details that are already existing in the system. Such type of login is highly secure but the only problem is the cost for such system is very high and out of the budget for many organizations.
So, friends, these are some of the most used technology in the field of authentication. The methods are very effective and no doubt in that they drive more traffic and sales to the business.
