Since the launch of July 2015, Windows 10 has been extensively transformed through updates. The most important thing will come soon.
In an imminent Windows 10 S version, Microsoft will give up traditional passwords while trying not to compromise on the data security side. At a time when each device that we use or the site we are accessing forces you to type a password, any step towards simplifying the authentication process is welcomed. It almost doesn’t matter if it will be initially implemented in the slightly simpler version of Windows 10.
If the whole concept is alien to you, Windows 10 S was launched by Microsoft less than a year ago as a popular operating system variant for systems with a weaker hardware configuration. By default, that iteration of the SO doesn’t support installing application except within the Windows Store. However, unlike the resounding failure that was Windows RT, 10 S can be upgraded to a standard version of Windows 10.
Through an imminent update to Windows 10 S, Microsoft wants to rely a little more on the technologies developed for Windows Hello. Instead of typing a password over which you later pass through a PIN or a fingerprint, you will log in with another method. Facilitating this configuration process will be done through the Microsoft Authenticator App. Basically, you sign into your smartphone once with your Microsoft account password, and from that point on your PC you can choose one of the alternative logging options.
