Microsoft wants to kill passwords, starting with Windows 10

How it works: You can now create a Microsoft account without a password. Instead, just enter your phone number. When you log on to Windows 10 with that phone number, Microsoft will write a code that you enter on the login screen. You can then use Windows Hello to set up a PIN, fingerprint or login method for logging in. You never need to write a password – your account doesn't even have one! And you don't have to enter a code that is sent via text every time you log in, either. You only need to receive a code on your phone when you log on to a new computer.

If you do not already have a passwordless phone number account, you can create one in a mobile app like Word on your iOS or Android device to try it. Simply go to Word and register with your phone number by entering your phone number under "Log in or register for free".

The latest building also has a streamlined PIN recovery experience for Windows Hi and improvements to the narrator. [19659002] RELATED: Windows 10's next update will make your computer faster thanks to better spectrum fixes
