"Log-in credentials derived from geographical information could reduce the majority of data breaches by providing an almost uncrackable replacement for conventional passwords, according to security researchers."

Interesting. But it wasn't clear to me if this was going to be software you installed on your system or you'd have to do this on their site or location. I much prefer to use an option that I can store securely and LOCALLY. Like KeepassX. With one good password or a file/key I can create and store all my passwords for easy reference. I'd be lost without KeePassX.
