Eyes, Fingers Or Faces As Passwords? Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Says Yes With Windows Hello

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) doesn’t want to get left behind in the race to make parts of the human body as passwords.

The company has just announced Windows Hello which will enable users of Windows 10 to use their eyes (their irises to be precise), fingers or faces as their passwords.

The Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) CEO Jack Ma’s recent demonstration of his firm’s new payment technology, we are sort of seeing a trend here.

However, while Ma did not give a specific target release date for his company’s selfie payment system, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is already committed to releasing Windows 10 later this year. It also seems the company is excited about Windows Hello.

“You — uniquely you — plus your device are the keys to your Windows experience, apps, data and even websites and services, not a random assortment of letters and numbers that are easily forgotten, hacked or written down and pinned to a bulletin board,” writes Joe Belfiore, Microsoft corporate VP of operating systems, in the post announcing the new technology.

Microsoft, is MSFT a good stock to buy,

The Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) executive points out that the need for a more secure way to safeguard our software and accounts is needed especially in the context of an ever more dangerous society where cyberattacks are becoming more common.

Passwords, he points out, are insecure for many people because passwords are often not too imaginative and people tend to use the same passwords over and over for different things.

Biometric security, on the other hand, verifies our identities using very unique physical characteristics like our fingerprints or iris patterns.

Still, it should be pointed out that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) needs to implement the technology in such a way that doesn’t severely impact system resources and doesn’t worry people about the privacy implications.

Joel Greenblatt’s Gotham Asset Management upped its stake in Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) to 836,500 by the end of the year, a 5,202% increase quarter over quarter.
