Nuke all your computer passwords, says Intel exec (INTC)

Let's face it: No one likes passwords.

With all the different websites and devices you log in to, it has become almost impossible to keep track of all your passwords.

But what if you could forget about passwords and log in instantly using something else, like your face or fingerprints?

Intel thinks that's a real possibility — and something you can do right away.

"We want to eliminate all passwords from computing," Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's client-computing group, said at the Citi Global Technology Conference held on Tuesday. "I can confidently say today, you can eliminate all your passwords today, if you buy a sixth-generation Core system."

This is nothing more than voluntary fingerprinting and facial recognition even though you have committed no crime. Do you really want that? I don't.
