Apple Watch can change the way you enter passwords on Mac

One of the functions that el Apple Watch is the possibility of unlocking our Mac, from the wrist by entering our access passwords. A very useful function and that avoids us having to enter the code chosen to access the information on our computer.

Can you imagine that it was possible that this option could be viable, not only to access our Mac? We could access the most common websites that need a password, just by pressing a button on our watch. That not only to tell the time or record our keystrokes, this wareable has been created, which by the way, is increasingly important in Apple.

The Apple Watch can help us a lot with our passwords.

Although we have in Macs, the possibility of entering passwords through Touch ID and in iPhones through Face ID, sometimes, you have to enter them manually. An idea, It would be the possibility of being able to authenticate ourselves in certain Web and applications, by pressing a button on our Apple Watch.

In fact, Microsoft has the ability to enter the password generated by its application, authenticator, through the Apple Watch, gaining effectiveness and efficiency, when we have to access certain services of Apple's competitor.

These types of applications, such as authenticator, are has been shown to be more effective than strong passwords randomly chosen by a program, like Apple's password manager, and especially those chosen by the user. Some data states that 51% of passwords are reused.

Nok Nok Labs, has presented an application based on this type of authentication, which intends that access to the Web and certain applications can be performed by confirming it, through the Apple Watch. It would get that the user enters passwords or access codes in one go and make sure others can't.

Instead of being asked for a password, the watch would simply ask you to tap on a check mark to authorize a login on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
