A password is something that is formed by the combination of letters, numbers, any special characters, symbols etc. Passwords are very special because they protect us from outsiders to access our personal services. Our bank account details, social media identity, email and lot more other services, they all are protected with the help of these passwords. But to manage all these passwords safely is one of the biggest problems that IT team is facing today. IT researchers and innovators are trying to find new techniques to provide a safe and secure login to users. Some of the best practices to avoid the headache of remembering passwords are as following:
There are many organizations where you can access websites by using their thumb impressions. Biometric is a revolutionary technique that makes the whole registration process simple and very fast. The user does not need to remember even a single set of username and password, all they need is to provide their thumb or finger impressions on the biometric device screen, the system will automatically read the identity and provides the access.
Single Sign-On Solution (SSO)
As the name suggest, single sign-on solution(sso) is an awesome technique that enables users to login to multiple websites and web applications by typing their username and password only once. That means in just one click of a mouse, the user can access multiple web applications of the same organization. For example, if you are registered with any of the Google product like Gmail, then you do not need to register again on YouTube, Google+, Google Drive etc. This saves both time and complexity users faced while login to the websites. Users can utilize this time by exploring more contents on the website. More the users know about the website more they understand product and more chances of them to make a purchase. So, from a business point, SSO technique is very important. The best part of having SSO is that users don’t have to remember a number of passwords for different websites.
When users wish to login a website, they have to fill registration forms. This may take several minutes and filling forms is very frustrating too. Here social sign-on is a boon for users. It allows users to login by using their existing social media accounts like on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter etc. This method also saves users from creating and remembering a new username and password. It also provides first-party data to the business that is very important for a business to make user targeted policies.
