Are SSO buttons, such as "Sign-in with Apple", better than passwords?

AppleApple recently said that a new one will be released shortly product, which will help users connect to sites without having to provide their email ID or create a new account. The new product is called "Sign-in with Apple" and is similar to its Single Sign-on services Google and Facebook.

Apple emphasized that this new product is one more a tool for enhancing the privacy of users by reducing the number of personal data sent to websites. In addition, it can create proxy email addresses so that the normal email ID is not shared with it website.

Google Product Management's Mark Mark Risher has stated that using Single Sign-on buttons is preferable to using a username and password, even if users choose their competitors' respective products. Risher is responsible for the "Sign-in with Google" button.

One of the most important advantages of Single Sign-on buttons is that they are addressing the issue of reusing passwords. Users are forced to create multiple accounts. So, to be sure they will not forget the passwords, they use the same for all their accounts. But this is dangerous, because if an account is broken, the attackers will acquire access and to others. For this reason, many companies are trying to use solutions that do not require a password.
