Microsoft rules out double identification system for the new Outlook
In Microsoft are devoting many efforts to improve the Security of its new email service Outlook.com, and obviously have Google as the main rival to beat on that topic. However, it replicated the double identification of Gmail, because according to them, this is used only for a very low percentage of users.
According to an ombudsman of Microsoft, Outlook will emphasize the strength of passwords, but the idea is to find a more convenient security option than Google, who needs extra confirmation code to login and to send to phone user (in addition to traditional password). The idea of Bill Gates’s company is to find a solution powerful enough and that everyone can use without too complicated existence with codes, passwords, second, and so on.
In saying that Google will defend the double identification method is increasingly used by “thousands of users per day,” despite the inconvenience of speaking at Microsoft. Apparently in Redmond believe that an extra step when logging is annoying enough to rule out the method, the point is that whatever you end up implementing fulfill the promise of security and convenience.
