Google Investing In Getting Rid Of Passwords

 
Google Investing In Getting Rid Of Passwords
Google is spending money to get rid of passwords.

The company has just bought an Internet startup called SlickLogin which has been working on a way websites can play an inaudible sound which would be "heard" only by an app on your smartphone, that would then send back a signal to confirm your identity using GPS, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

All you'd do to log in would be to put your phone next to the computer. SlickLogin hasn't launched the app yet - it was still in the process on getting financial backing.

The company is based in Israel and its founders say they have lots of experience with Israeli military security.
