No wonder some people want to get rid of passwords

found on Reddit

Passwords have their problems, no doubt. Would biometrics have been better? You want to dig the guy up to to unlock those millions? Maybe 2 factor authentication, except that would probably have gone through his phone, which they would need to be able to unlock using a passcode or biometrics.

It's almost as if passwords aren't really the problem here. Maybe it was entrusting everything to just one person. Maybe passwords aren't really the problem in other scenarios too.
