Microsoft is extending Zero Password support to consumers

Windows 10 and Windows 11 users can now opt to remove passwords as a way to access a Microsoft account app.

I still see Enterprise IT shipping new PCs with old password schemes instead of Windows Hello. It’s a long and windy road, but Microsoft takes another step to get rid of passwords forever.

Meanwhile people still get told to use local Windows accounts. I believe this is going away with Windows 11. I have not used them for many years.
