I would never show and tell my passwords to anyone else. One reason is that more than half the time I can’t remember what they are. But the good news is that I don’t really have to anymore. Let me explain.
I rarely use my Windows laptop anymore. Honestly, I can’t recall the last time I booted up my laptop. I pretty much do everything I need to do on my iPhone, including blogging on WordPress.
But what does this have to do with passwords, you ask? Well, I’m so glad you asked. My iPhone has face recognition, and once I’ve logged into an app or an account for the first time, my iPhone saves my password in something it calls iCloud Keychain. It allows iPhone users to keep their passwords and other secure information updated.
And the next time I go to an app that has been enabled with iCloud Keychain and face recognition, I’m in — without having to try to remember or to key in my password for that app.
Is it foolproof? Is it impenetrable? Probably not. As Jim Adams said in this post, just about any system, can be broken into if enough effort is put into it, as where there is a will, there is a way. But so far, I haven’t been hacked…at least not from my iPhone.
