Password Free Login System in process by Google!
Password Free Login System
We all know that passwords are the worst, and now the most popular website in the world is taking steps to get rid of them. Now google solve that problem with Password Free login.
Google confirmed this tuesday it’s now testing a new way to sign into your Google account without having to type in a password. Instead, those who have been invited to try this new method of logging in authenticate by responding to a notification sent to their smartphone.
Passwords are often the weakest parts when it comes to securing users’ accounts, as many don’t use complex passwords or they reuse the same password across services. Two-factor authentication – like using a USB stick with a secret token or entering in a code sent via text method to your phone – can help to increase security, but many users also find this to be a hassle as it introduces an additional step to the login process.
This new password-free login option, on the other hand, is about speeding up logins by offering a different way of signing in altogether.
You only have to enter your email address when you’re signing into your Google account. Afterward, a notification will appear on your phone asking you if you’re trying to sign in from another device. Approve the login by tapping “yes,” and you’re in.
In the event that your phone is stolen, Google advises users should sign into their account from another device and remove account access from the device you no longer have in your possession.
Meanwhile, Google isn’t the first company with this idea. Yahoo in October updated iOS and Android apps with a new authentication system that uses push notifications to verify you. The blogging site Medium launched a similar system in June that lets you sign in using just an email address.
