Twitter : War On Passwords Post Posted: Fri Oct 24, 2014 12:30 pm

During a developers conference in San Francisco, Twitter formally declared war on passwords and unveiled a new system that allows users to log-in to mobile apps with a phone number.

On Wednesday, director for mobile platforms at the popular social network, Jeff Seibert, introduced Digits - a free tool Twitter offers in 28 languages and 216 countries.

With Digits the user types in the phone number and receives a one-time confirmation number via text. Even though, digits is not a part of Twitter.

Seibert said that it the system is better than the combination of e-mail address and password, which is easy to forget, often difficult to key in on mobile phones, and exposed to identity theft.

Moreover, Derek Hearn,a young techie from Chicago and a developer who attended the conference welcomed Twitter`s tool.

Hearn, who works for MeetBall, a company sharing the willing users` location on mobile devices said, "Digits piqued my curiosity."

A mobile-apps developer for a digital education firm in New York, Cameron Hendrix, described Digits as "more secure" than the current password-based system.
