Securing out data online is getting harder and harder as hackers who want to take out data are learning how to exploit tech faster than it can compensate. In 2018, over stolen or weak passwords were tied to over 80% of all security incidents, and in 2019, weak authentication methods lead to over 150,000 security incidents and nearly 4,000 confirmed breaches of data. These stolen credentials are so easy to get that in 2020, an estimated 15 billion of these credentials were up for sale on the dark web.

The reason so many passwords are breached is because passwords are a very weak way to protect data. Passwords are weak because they rely on both the user and the service provider to keep a secret. Another problem with passwords is that it requires users to remember a number of passwords, and to protect those passwords.
