NEWS Biggest changes in Windows 10 Build 17093 Better GPU, HDR, and Bluetooth management are among the changes coming to Windows 10. MARK HACHMAN reports Microsoft sees a future without passwords in Windows 10 Insider Build 17093, at least for Windows 10 S users. The firm has quietly worked to downplay passwords via PIN codes, fingerprint sensors, and even facial recognition. But actually killing them entirely within Windows 10 S is one of the key changes coming with what may be called 4 TECH ADVISOR • MAY 2018 Worldmags.net

NEWS the Spring Creators Update, code-named ‘Redstone 4,’ expected to launch in late March or early April. The build, which is available now, also includes new multi-GPU graphics settings, improved eye tracking, quicker connections using Bluetooth, and clutter-free printing, among others. Let’s take a look. Windows 10 S takes a pass on passwords Last October, one of the hidden features within the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update was a mechanism to eliminate passwords and replace them with an authenticator app – but the feature didn’t actually do anything. Now it does. A password, of course, is the traditional way of accessing Windows – but it’s a pain to remember and change. Within Windows 10, Microsoft implemented shortcuts of a sort, including a short PIN code or logging in with your face or fingerprint via Windows Hello. But setting those up required a password, too. Now Microsoft is using its Authenticator App for Android and iOS, which spits out an eight-digit code every minute that’s uniquely keyed to your phone. It might not replace a good, strong, unique password, but an attacker would need to have access to a (hopefully) secured phone as well as your PC. To set up Windows Hello or a PIN, you’ll need to enter the Authenticator code instead. Though this is an Insider build – meaning that it could eventually change – Microsoft implies this is a permanent decision. “With the changes in this build, your Windows 10 S PC will automatically make your experience password-free,” Microsoft wrote in a blog Worldmags.net MAY 2018 • TECH ADVISOR 5
