Android wants to look into a future that is passwordless. After all, so many times we have been annoyed by the fact, that we do not exactly remember our passwords despite the fact that we had just recently memorized them in order to avoid being in a panic when we are unable to be logged into our devices or apps.

Your accounts will still be as secure without a password

Your accounts would not be compromised in any way even if you go passwordless in the future, which is what Android is looking out for. You can use the most difficult of passwords and despite that, you may become a victim of serious hacking. Two-factor authentication is required and then one can get into accounts. However, they do not make you feel any more secure than an average one-step process because at the end of the day hackers have their ways and often they find the messages and steal the required security code in order to even tackle the problem of two-step authentication.
