This is in the works now to save you from dealing with all those passwords.

It sounds to me like the pill will emit a signal which will be picked up by your mobile device (with the right app. of course) and process your id. Sounds simple enough. A 'smart tat' will do the same.

Maybe for desktops they can sell some kind of usb connected chip scanner. If they do, it should come with a long enough cord..... just a thought.

What would you prefer, the pill or the tat?

Reminds me of when they decided that starting your car using a fingerprint was a good idea. They used to say, "Give me your keys!" Now they cut off your finger...

There are plenty of software solutions for the problem.

Firefox will store your encrypted passwords. Look in Tools/Options/Security/Passwords. Keepass will do the same. To download Keepass click on the download at the top right corner and wait for a gray dialog box to open.

Filehippo is safe. I've been downloading from them for years without a single problem.

This is basically calling a duck by another name. Or more specific, calling a key fob or access card by another name.

As cumbersome as passwords are, they do have an advantage in that they are cheap to implement, and easy to manage. You have passwords for accounts and stuff not because there aren't already other solutions (i.e. biometrics, one time tokens, key cards, dongles, or a combination of these), but because they are cheap, and they are easily changed.

If you had the choice of using passwords for free, or pay for enhanced security (key fob, token, biometrics etc.). Which would you chose?
