    Researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory found a way to track and verify the identities of Wi-Fi users so they won’t need to use passwords to log into networks. Essentially, the technology would assign them a certain location within a given perimeter that would act as a password for that Wi-Fi network. As long as the system determines that you’re stationary within that perimeter, and, therefore, allowed to hop onto that Internet access point, you can connect to Wi-Fi without hassles.
    According to the research, the Chronos system is so smart that it can tell the difference between patrons of a coffee shop and people walking outside. The router would only let those people inside the shop access the network.
