Cybersecurity experts at Forbes are suggesting that new quantum IDs could replace passwords in the future. Containing 1,000 trillion atoms, the IDs are said to be far more reliable than passwords, QR codes and holograms. Lancaster University start-up Quantum Base is currently investigating the technology, and claim that it would take 13 billion years to clone. There are potentially already applications for large-scale manufacturing.
