One of the major challenges of blockchain is the existing legacy infrastructure of each of the enterprises engaged in this development and implementation process.

iOS 11 adds password manager

A safe and secure password may not be in the cards for iOS

Password managerApple's iOS 11 comes with a new feature could make passwords less annoying and perhaps less secure.

Whenever a login box appears -- including in apps -- a small key-prompt appears, allowing the user to open their bank of passwords. The password manager is protected by the user's device passcode, or Touch ID if it's enabled, to prevent others from snooping.

Many users new to iOS 11 will find that their password manager already be populated with login information. That's because passwords that were saved in Safari -- either on older versions of iOS or their Macs -- are now stored in the iOS 11's password manager. The key difference is that the saved passwords now work within apps, too.

Password managers are ever increasing in popularity because they take the effort out of remembering your entire set of account passwords across various apps, websites, and services. In most cases, password managers encourage users to use strong, unique passwords, which prevent hackers from reusing stolen credentials from one service to attack a user on another site.

Although the feature is a boon for personal user security, it won't be a death knell to other password managers -- many of which have far more security and privacy-focused features packed in than Apple's relatively barebones version. At the time of writing, for example, the password manager feature doesn't allow users to generate passwords, a feature of most other password managers.
