Something good from Yahoo- Until you lose your smartphone

Yahoo email users will have a new way to login in to their accounts that will no longer require them to remember a traditional password.

The tech giant introduced on-demand passwords, where users can have new passwords sent to them via text message every time they need to log in and check out their inbox.

The service is optional, so users interested in on-demand passwords go to Settings, then Security to set it up.

I could use this service. I have scores of passwords and every day I forget at least one of them.

Of course I could just use one of the password management software around but I just cant be bothered. This is more secure and more convenient.
