That’s the promise from Clef, a new WordPress security plugin that let’s you securely log in with no passwords.
There’s no doubt that passwords are painful. Every day, it seems like we need to remember one more long password with 10 characters, 4 numbers and a compelling character arc. On average, we need to remember more than 25 passwords each, and almost half of us would rather clean a toilet than think up a new one. The usability is terrible…but that’s only the beginning of the problem.
The WordPress security team says that the weakest link in the security of anything you do online is your password — and they are completely right. With modern computing power, hackers can break almost any password in a few days and it seems like every day we hear about a new botnet attack going after WordPress sites.
The verdict is in: passwords are too painful and dangerous.
That’s where Clef comes in. You just hold up your phone and you’re instantly logged in on any computer. It’s amazing—you really have to see it to believe it.
Once you sync for the first time, you can log in to every website you’ve connected to Clef with one click. Then, when you click the logout button on your phone, you’re logged out of all of your sites at once. You can sit down at your computer, log in once with Clef, and have your whole online identity open up in front of you—then have it lock behind you when you leave.
But Clef isn’t just about the user experience—they’ve also built a system that’s much more secure than passwords. The app uses secure asymmetric cryptography, which would take computers literally billions of years to crack. And it’s built so that even if hackers read their entire database, they’d be no closer to stealing your identity.
To top it all off, Clef’s WordPress plugin is a breeze to install and setup ( I’m not the only one to think that), so you can get rid of your passwords in no time!
Go install Clef today and protect your WordPress login forever.
