This new functionality has been introduced for several months now for power users, and it allows you to simply remove the connection password and use a workaround to validate the connection to your account.
Windows Hello, a physical security key, a verification code received by email or SMS, or a Windows Authenticator are all possible options to replace your password.

The authentication is done through a trusted third party solution and will also allow you to connect faster than usual. Learn how to remove your Microsoft account sign-in password.
