Login passwords which were considered to be one of the safest option to keep your data safe have now become the weakest security tool and easy to be breached with users generally using weak, default passwords.
To now protect the online privacy and all types of data which require a robust security practice two PC makers Lenovo and Intel have announced their first PC with an In Built authentication measure which support users’ online browsing.
The PCs will be having a new safer way to log in to websites. First the user would need to touch a finger on the fingerprint reader via the Universal Authentication Framework and with click of real time on screen button which is powered by Universal 2nd Factor makes it easy for PC to identify the user and directly prompts the user to click on a button to log in to the websites.
Intel will be using the 7th and 8th Gen Intel Core Processors which will be integrated with FIDO authentication in the PCs which makes it easy for users to have an safe online authentication process when they log in to the websites like Paypal, Google and more.
The inbuilt authentication also helps Merchants by extending the enhanced security measures to daily users who use the PC to have access social media, internet banking and doing online transactions regularly.
Johnson Jia, Senior Vice President of Lenovo’s PC and Smart Device Product Group states: “Going online has become an indispensable part of our daily lives in the always-on, digital world. People need hassle-free, built-in security that helps to protect them when logging into websites for banking, shopping, and social media.
The company will be partnering with Intel to deliver FIDO certified solutions which address online security issues by providing simpler and safer online transactions. Brett McDowell, executive director of FIDO Alliance says the partnership between Intel and Lenovo will bring the first FIDO enabled embedded fingerprint which will include support for all FIDO protocols on new leading PC models and is a great technology to move the world beyond passwords and protect users data by hardware level encryption.
The Intel Online connect will be made available via the Lenovo System Update and Lenovo App Explorer on all Lenovo Laptops which come with 7th and 8th Gen Intel Core processors that have enabled Intel SGX. Some of the compatible devices that would receive the update are Yoga 920, ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th Generation), ThinkPad Yoga 370 and more.
