But then again he would, wouldn't he?
'Passwords should be ditched and replaced with biometric logins because they don't sufficiently protect people, according to the top cybersecurity official at Microsoft.
Bret Arsenault told US broadcaster CNBC that 90 per cent of the tech giant's 135,000 employees now logged in without a password, instead using methods like facial and fingerprint recognition.
He said: 'Hackers don't break in, they log in…we still a see lot of attempts of people trying to password spray.' Password spraying is a method where hackers try to access large numbers of accounts at once by using common passwords.
'The best way to protect against the password spray is just to eliminate passwords', Arsenault, Microsoft's chief information security officer, said.
'If you have passwords, you have to enable multi-factor authentication. The thing we are seeing is lots of people just focused on eliminating that whole vector.'
A survey by the National Cyber Security Centre published last month found 23.2million hack victims worldwide used '123456' as a password, with a further 7.7million adding '789' onto the end of that.
A further 735,935 victims used Premier League football teams Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United as passwords.
UK banks have increasingly adopted biometric authorisation in recent years. Last week Santander announced it was joining Barclays, Lloyds and HSBC by introducing voice ID for telephone banking customers.
Instead of requiring users to remember a password, their voice is analysed to determine whether or not it is the account holder calling.
The banks claim that the technology can differentiate even between a real voice and a played recording.
Fellow high street bank NatWest also announced last week it was embracing biometric authorisation, as it announced the trial of a debit card that uses your fingerprint rather than a Pin. It is being trialled with 300 of the bank’s customers, and requires users to scan one fingerprint onto the card.''
