Splitting passwords up could be the next big thing next to 2-factor authentication schemes which companies such as Google, Facebook or PayPal have offered as an opt-in service to their users. The two solutions use different angles to improve the protection of user account data from attackers. Where 2-factor authentication is entirely the user’s responsibility, splitting up passwords is entirely dependent on the webmaster and company running the server.
