It is worth noting Microsoft has been making strides towards a passwordless future.

Microsoft closed 2020 with a promise that 2021 would be the year it moves to a passwordless future. Microsoft stuck to its promise by adding a passwordless option to Outlook and OneDrive.

Among the password-less decisions the company as made in recent years include password-free login for Azure AD through Microsoft Authenticator. Elsewhere, customers also get password-free Microsoft Account login with FIDO2 compatibility. Then there’s Windows Hello, which uses biometric tools to remove the need for a password.

Last month Microsoft confirmed Basic Authentication for Microsoft Exchange will end in 2022.
