Computer pioneer Fernando Corbato, who first used passwords to protect user accounts, has died aged 93.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

Dr Corbato introduced the basic security measure while developing methods that let more people use a computer at the same time.

He developed a technique, called time-sharing, that divided up the processing power of a computer so it could serve more than one person at once.

Dr Corbato reportedly died as a result of complications caused by diabetes.
