Google is testing new, password-free system for access to its services
On Tuesday, tech giant Google confirmed to TechCrunch that it is testing a new, password-free system to enable users to sign into the company’s services, like the popular Gmail email service.
According to the details shared by a Google representative, the new feature which Google is testing will give the users of Google’s services the ability to sign into their accounts without having to enter a password.
The representative further revealed that the new feature, which Google is already experimenting with “a small group of users,” will enable the users of Google’s services to confirm their identity simply by using their smartphones; with “No password required.”
With Google already allowing its users to enable the ‘two-factor authentication’ security mechanism -- which required users to enter a code that is delivered to their handsets -- for accessing its services, the testing of the new, password-way free system will completely circumvent the need to input passwords.
Since the password-free system being testing by Google will apparently take the ‘password’ section out of the ‘two-factor authentication’ process, users of Google’s services will just be required to have access to the auxiliary device, without having to remember any complicated passphrases.
