Re: Google Declares War on the Password
The biggest single problem with a log on/password was when online companies shifted to requiring or using your Email address as a log on. Once a big company is compromised the thieves can then just try that email/password combination at all the other major sites. I, like many other people I know use the same password and a different log on depending on what site we are using. I have a different user name for gaming and a different user name for banking and yet another different user name for online shopping. That extra layer of protection of being able to use a different user name at different sites was nullified when companies moved to using/requiring email addresses as a log on.
