We all have to deal with trying to remember passwords every day.  Chances are you probably keep them written down.  One company is envisioning a world without passwords.

A world free of passwords may be closer than we expect.

A London-based start-up named "Aim Brain" has developed programs which give people other options to access their accounts.

One of them is called a "behavioral" mode app.  It allows users to login to bank accounts by tracking how their thumbs enter a four-digit code.  For example the application monitors how hard you press, and how quickly you swipe.

Developers say the feature cannot be beaten by just copying someone's movements.

"Aim Brain" has also developed a "selfie" feature that lets people into their accounts by simply scanning their face with their phone's camera.

Developers hope other companies, besides banks, will add the features in the near future.
