Twitter declared war on passwords and  unveiled a new system that will allow users to log in to mobile apps with a phone number.

Known us Digits, all users will  have to do is enter their phone number, and Digits will send a confirmation code to verify the number. Twitter says there’s no need to remember complex passwords or usernames.

Michael Ducker twitter Product Manager said in a blog post that they built Digits after doing extensive research around the world about how people use their smartphones.

”What we found was that first-time Internet users in places like Jakarta, Mumbai and São Paulo were primarily using a phone number to identify themselves to their friends. But until Digits, there has been no simple way for app developers to integrate phone-based sign-up and sign-in to your apps” he adds.

Each developer is in control with Digits. It lets you build your own profiles and apps, giving you the security of knowing your users are SMS-verified.

”We began rolling out Digits, part of Fabric, today. Developers interested in Digits should visit dev.twitter.com/fabric to get access to Fabric and the Twitter Kit” Michael Ducker said
