We are almost getting to the point where we just have a single ID for our browsing use instead of remembering usernames and passwords for our online use.
President Obama has taken steps forward to giving every citizen a unique online ID as a cybersecurity initiative by the U.S. Commerce. Called the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, the idea is to provide every U.S. citizen with a single online ID to sign-in to multiple sites, pages, and platforms. U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said that the new system wouldÂ not be a national ID card, or a system controlled by the government, but to enhance security and reduce the need for people to memorize dozens of passwords online.
It is currently in aÂ draftingÂ stage and is expected to have more development over the next few months.
