Goodbye to passwords, the Bluetooth of your mobile will help you start your sessions

Passwords are a nuisance for many when it comes to starting their session in the different services they use. The worst of all is that you have to remember each and every one of them if you have them different, but if you have an app that is dedicated to generating and saving them, it may be a success. But this may change very soon with the help of a smartphone connected via Bluetooth to the computer to verify your credentials.

big companies come together

The first thing a user does when entering the Internet is to create an email account. This is the most basic and then comes access to the rest of the services where it is possible to take a look at all the content they hide just by registering. But the registration process can seem the same every time, boring and mechanical.

For this, the agency was opened in 2013 FIDO, which advocates the decreasing use of passwords in pursuit of simpler and stronger mechanisms. In this sense, the entry of biometric recognition may be a strong commitment to help solve this problem at a stroke.

And it is that you big companies are behind a formula with which you can say goodbye to passwords using Bluetooth. It might not make much sense, but it starts to catch on if you have a phone connected to a computer wirelessly.

The operation is as easy as every time you start the session one of the services of the three brands you can open it without using your password and instead put the fingerprint with which you unlock your terminal.

A physical verification function

As the document says “use of Bluetooth requires physical proximity, which means we now have a phishing-resistant way to seize the user’s phone during authentication.” It would really be an advance for users in this sense, since it would work as a real verification that it is you.

Likewise, the use of electronic two-step verification applications would be avoided since it would only be enough to put your fingerprint on the phone. What for many is a problem is the use of Bluetooth, a very useful connector but also very vulnerable due to the possible capture of external signals that could be from a ‘person in the middle’ or a third party that physically intercepts the signal and can spy on you
