Fed up with Password

Few would disagree that the current form of password system is disliked, hated, loathed and fed up with.

Hence our proposition — We do not have to stick to remembering something afresh. We could instead make use of what we remembered many years ago and retained deep in our brain without any effort as the secret credentials.

What about removing the password/PIN?

Its effect is most easily perceivable if we look at unlocking of mobile devices. Where the password/PIN are removed from unlocking process, we could only rely on (1) a physical token or (2) a set of physical token and biometrics used in ‘two-entrance’ deployment.

(1) is no different to an ATM that dispenses cash without PIN, whereas the security of (2) is even lower than (1). Can they be a smart choice?
