    Here is the link to Steve Gibson's SQRL project, IMO it is an excellent idea but I don't know of any sites that are using it, I wonder if Wilders might consider implementing SQRL ?

    I am a huge fan of Steve, SQRL and his podcast Security Now.

    I really hope SQRL takes off.

    Microsoft's supporting Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) Alliance. (Windows 10)
    Brad Hill, who was one of the chief architects of FIDO, said he thought SQRL was the best-thought-out
    system that he had seen.

    FIDO is all based on hardware, but one of the advantages is that SQRL doesn't require any hardware.
    You're able to have a software-only client, which is absolutely secure.

    I really hope to see this take off. It works. Its secure. It is easy. It can be pseudo-anonymous. I will switch to this instantly once it becomes available. :)

    I too have been hoping to see it becomes common, but it won't come soon and I guess most ppl even haven't heard of its name.
