Microsoft: 150 Million People are using Passwordless Logins each Month

Each year on the first Thursday in May, World Password Day promotes better password habits. As World Password Day was celebrated this week, Tech Giant Microsoft shared some interesting statistics on its blog.

150 Million People are using 'Passwordless' Logins each Month

According to Microsoft, more and more people are refusing to use traditional passwords and prefer alternative authentication solutions to them. So, the number of users using Microsoft’s “passwordless” solutions reached 150 million (compared to 100 million in November 2019). This figure covers users of the company's online services such as Azure, GitHub, Office, and Xbox. Internally, 90% of Microsoft employees already use a passwordless authentication solution.
Company statistics include users who rely on Windows Hello (Biometric and face recognition) to access Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), as well as users who use the Microsoft Authenticator application and FIDO2-enabled keys to log in to various accounts without passwords.
Microsoft claims that one of its current goals is to encourage people to use multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions as well as password-free authentication methods, which will generally increase the security of their accounts. After all, company research proves that most people, as a rule, use the same passwords repeatedly, putting their accounts at risk and making them easier to crack.
The company also notes that the rejection of passwords can reduce the cost of technical support, as employees simply do not have passwords that they can forget, and then ask to reset.
