Augur has partnered with Airbitz to use its Edge Security Platform. Essentially users are able to secure their account client side by using the Airbitz wallet app to scan a barcode. Private keys are created for the user locally, encrypted and backed up. Thereafter the app can be used to login without needing to rely on creating, remembering or safely securing strong passwords.

In addition, direct Ledger and Trezor integration (as opposed to ERC20 token support which already exists for both Trezor and Ledger) is planned and if you run Augur inside of a web3 enabled browser (e.g., MetaMask, Parity Plugin, Parity Browser, Mist Browser) then you will benefit from whatever security measures the browser supports.

uPort integration is also planned for a future release.
