It is not new that many companies are getting the batteries to eliminate the use of passwords. Not surprisingly, the use of these characters is often a dangerous task that can lead to all sorts of problems, including theft of data and accounts. Therefore, major technology companies are taking steps forward in their elimination. One of the latest was Yahoo, thanks to its characteristic Yahoo Account Key.
If you use Yahoo Mail, you may have noticed a new option called Yahoo Account Key is available. This completely eliminates the use of passwords, verifying the identity of users using only the mobile terminal. Thus, every time you want to connect to email service, your phone will receive a notification that only needs to press to open the account.
Thanks to the notification it will be possible to indicate if the attempt of access is real or not, being able to block the same one in case we consider it to be necessary. Of course, we can ourselves verify identities to connect thanks to messages sent to our email address and alternate phone numbers.
Before you can start using Yahoo Account Key it is necessary to validate the service with a simple text message. Of course, the choice of its use is completely free: can choose the new function or the usual passwords.
Yahoo has decided to step forward with this new feature, which already is being well received by users. Although it is still necessary that more people adopt its use so that we can define it as a reliable and with future. Would you already have said goodbye to passwords? It is possible that we are facing one of the most reliable security options.
