Secure communication requires two things; a secure encrypted data stream and strong authentication of the sender and receiver. With passwords dead, but still not completely buried, the industry turns to new technologies, like biometrics and behaviour. But passwords shouldn’t be replaced with just another technology. The real strength comes in the combination of several things, what is generally called "multi-factor authentication".
A combination of a fingerprint, on YOUR phone, with a pin code that only YOU know are examples that show that the combination of authentication factors increases the proof that it is YOU with multiple times higher probability than just using one intricate technology.
