Interestingly, we have got something new to avoid remembering passwords, and that is a new way to log into the apps without using passwords. This is all because the micro-blogging website Twitter has publicly launched their new phone number based log-in system termed as Digits, a kind of password killer that wonderfully allows the users to log into different apps and services by using their Smartphone. The newly added feature prevents the users from the headache of remembering multiple passwords. Twitter’s new Digits log in system is exactly what you will call a true password-killer when you will see yourself using different websites, applications and services by the help of this new feature.
This is an intriguing way for the developers to easily log into any website via Smartphone by using digits. Furthermore, if anybody uses their phone number with multiple digits-enabled applications, then whenever they have to log in via their website browser, they don’t need to log in again.
