No More Passwords Required!

Have you ever imagined a world where you don’t need to remember all the passwords you set on every device and/or websites? Remember all the times you tried different passwords and none of them worked?From now on, we can forget about all this trouble. The company Bionym will launch their first device, the Nymi.
This device is capable of memorizing all the passwords you use daily and can even open your car and your house doors. And the best part is that the Nymi can take any form. Essentially, it has been created as a bracelet, but you can have it also as a ring, a necklace, or a waistband. And the functionality of this device is rather easy to understand. It is based on your electrocardiogram (ECG), a measurement of your electrical activity produced by your heart. Why? Well, the ECG is proper for every human, because it is based on your size, position, and physiology of your heart. This means the only one who can use your Nymi is yourself. Even if someone takes it, he will not be able to activate it. When you wear the Nymi, your cell phone, apps that require passwords, will all open up instantly. No more “Please enter Password” for the rest of your life. Isn’t that nice?
One part of me wants to say that this technology is amazing, but the other is a little bit more skeptic about this product. Sometimes it is hard to remember our passwords and credit numbers, but do we really need to put this private information in the hands of an electronic device? I think that nowadays, we trust too much the technology that surrounds us. The Nymi is an innovative product, and this is what makes our society move on to another level. But when it comes down to our personal information, I will rather keep it in my head than in an electronic device. Maybe later, someone will find a way to hack the Nymi, and all our privacy will be gone…
