Satya Nadella: Microsoft Working on Password-free World

With growing concerns over security of emails and mobile phones, technology giant Microsoft on Thursday said it is working on ways to rid tech users of their worries over passwords.

“One of the biggest security issues is passwords. One of the things that we are working on is a world where passwords are not going to be the ones that, you know, can get hacked but you really have other biometrics that really help us secure our computing interfaces,” Microsoft Corp. CEO Satya Nadella said in Mumbai.

He was delivering the keynote address at “Future Unleashed: Accelerating India,” Microsoft’s customer conference. Hyderabad-born Nadella said the company has a sense of purpose that is about empowering every person on the planet to achieve more.

“We had a mission of putting a personal computer PC on every desk in every home, but in retrospect that was a goal…Our mission was to empower every individual and organization. That’s really what I look at as we go forward,” said Nadella, who has completed 25 years at Microsoft. Nadella runs an average of 5 km. a day reads 10 books on weekends.
