Blue -- are right from -- Los Angeles now we're gonna got a New York back for our next guest who were there earlier of course is dominant topic Jennifer booting from foxbusiness.com.
We're talking about whether or not the password is dead.
I'm Jennifer I know that's been a topic a lot of people have brought up recently spoke -- the hacking incidents.
What what do you got forced tells what was your take is on this whole situation.
Sure well the password is dying.
Whether we want to believe it or not you know is kind of aids since sons.
And experts are saying that some party believe that it has died in part of that is because there are -- much better technologies that are in the pipeline.
That startups are working on say it voice recognition or face recognition or even scanning your finger or your I.
Second -- Not more viable and kind of thwart d.'s cyber attacks that we keep seeing some of them have been very high profile including Twitter -- I mean on Twitter sorry best team but there's also -- on outside of social media sat amnesty espionage with them.
Reports that China is looking into weapons systems so it is something that is becoming very imperative and that's well.
The question I asked and it's something that you know the study showed a lot of people still use very -- -- like 123456.
Or backwards or whatever their name.
Bomb and then I'm guilty of this I'm website that no matter as much so use the same passwords nominee is like -- -- might.
You know maybe it's and Gmail -- you don't go to very often or something like that in his seat on Michael -- -- and had nothing on and it's important so.
They -- where they may not be easy but it's something I use also -- a different web site.
-- that's also problematic as well.
And it's a lot of -- is that people don't think that they're going to be attacked so what they'll create these passwords -- you said it could be as simple as one through six or.
A lot of times it's password one because that -- a lot of minimum requirements with the upper and lower case.
A lot of the issue is with that is that these computers.
These hackers have these sophisticated systems that can guess passwords pretty.
Pretty quickly -- -- -- -- and I'm I'll give you an example.
If you have say.
A billion computers are if you have a clustered computers.
Guessing passwords at a billion per second which is possible.
For some of the more sophisticated attacks.
And you have a password that is say eight characters even if it's a pretty complex and it's -- -- lower key symbols.
Even if you have that it will take 83 days about one expert on put this together.
However if that password still as complex but is only six characters.
You can take them thirteen minutes to guess that so it really shows you'd be impaired -- business of the -- these complex passwords because.
It will come and it and guests and a dictionary attack and canceling a dictionary attack there's also Phishing schemes which -- Malicious emails and a lot of people click on -- much -- seen -- I'm in a question for its second personally to reach out to a few people that are.
They have done that yet -- watching Chris Rosen is launching -- -- Perry Steve Norton and public react and we appreciate you guys tune in.
-- my question is what about those web sites or those apps that allow you to put all of -- -- passwords in and then it.
Basically controls you don't think about.
You know fifteen different.
Passwords that are all pretty complex meals have to carry around it five by seven card with you to make -- you -- -- -- -- -- -- It's funny as spoke to one of the experts I interviewed for this.
He said you know I have say 700 accounts and I have 700 different passwords for all those accounts and I.
Was of course expressed a little shocked because.
That is a lot to remember especially when you're trying to make those all very complex.
There are password managers that you can buy a lot of big company -- do you offer those a lot of big security companies.
And what they'll do is a pretty much controlled the whole system for you you just go -- you buy -- and you don't even have to think about it it it changes on the often free to.
And it and it puts an all right there so that's probably the best way to protect of course people will also.
Expressed concern about that it's that -- the -- trust issue note you know I should die down.
Put my trust into this piece of technology.
A lot of people want to do it themselves but there's risks associated with that has allowed.
Yeah no it's definitely maybe it is that you.
Paul pulled out of this -- the password dead.
I think that it is probably going to die I don't think it ever will officially diet.
It depends -- ask of course but.
I think that that with these new technologies coming on the pipe coming up the pipeline 1%.
That is believed he was saying that.
There's all these Silicon Valley.
Technology startups that are starting to kind of developed these apps where they can do.
Fingerprint and -- and facial recognition Brett and that recognition all of these things that for now to us -- seem a little far often.
But it makes sense because if you go in your phone -- an android and you look at some of the pictures -- -- -- it will recognize some of those spaces so.
I think it will come up in the pipeline and it hasn't really fully then.
I'm with regular consumers because I think it is a little bit complex right now it needs and get to the point where it's simple enough tonight.
Just DC -- and you can just check -- You know security measures -- -- Twitter and -- now which both have that double layer what's the first is obviously the password in the second is when I am.
Send you a text of the code to your phone and then you have to put that in that's double rare.
But there is hope that this multi layer that goes beyond that will come it just has to get to the point where company is.
And people aren't spending all of this money to kind of get over that -- are learning curve.
Yet that's you came on I think last week that apple.
-- working -- technology a patent was was -- I believe for fingerprint technology so other.
That would be -- and you -- seen some of those fingerprint technology.
Secondary products you can plug into your computer that -- to iron fingerprints that for example to sign onto your computer so.
That would be a good way of going through your friend -- retina technology and I think that that would eventually.
That would help a lot of us have to keep track of all these darn password it'll -- an anomaly in -- good thing.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That's of course on Twitter and now foxbusiness.com.
-- -- coming on talking about passwords and hopefully we'll see that -- the technology sooner it is fishing expedition.
Cyber -- expose flawed password system -- I have a had a lot of friends that had their passwords tacked on Twitter FaceBook and all and all the different locations or go -- -- have to be careful what you open.
Yet exactly and -- meditate on Monday after this conversation I think super percent giants haven't.
