Right now Maidsafe works with password and pin, let’s say that in the future we have a easier way to log in, personally I prefer SQRL:
Let’s say that you loose your account details. It would be nice if you had a backup, freedombox has a nice solution, splitting up key among family and friends. So if you would loose your login, you would just contact these trusted party to give you the pieces of your puzzle.
Sorry i’m to lazy to go and find the freedombox source
