How many passwords do you have? If you’re like most of us you probably have a number of them. Experts suggest that you have a different password for every account or device you use but how do you keep them straight? Technology to the rescue.

It comes in the shape of a new pill. That’s right, a pill. The tiny pill contains an even smaller chip that transmits your details. Electronic devices will be able to read the signal, ending the need for passwords.

It’s already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and European regulators. The  sensor is powered by a battery using the acid in your stomach and it is designed to move through your body at the normal rate of digestion,so you’ll take one every day, right along with your vitamins I guess.

It’s based on a technology developed by a California company called Proteus Digital Health.

Motorola executive, Regina Dugan, says, ‘Essentially, your entire body becomes your authentication token.’
The company is also exploring the use electronic tattoos that contain personal verification data.
