A fully passwordless internet is a foregone conclusion. CTOs, CIOs, developers, and, most importantly, consumers are all aligned in wanting to phase out the clunky password-based authentication paradigm we have today to improve both security and user experience. What’s less clear is what the passwordless future will look like and how we’ll get there. Balancing security against ease of use, while accounting for learning curves, edge cases, and imperfect human behavior, requires a thoughtful approach to implementing innovative login mechanisms. QR login, leveraging biometrics-enabled smartphone apps with a password fallback, is the smoothest and most secure bridge for transitioning users to a fully passwordless experience.
