Google and SlickLogin will aim to make a safe Internet easy for everyone
SlickLogin is, well, pretty slick. It's a two-factor authentication system for your computer, that uses your smartphone as the authenticator. Sounds pretty standard, right? It's not. SlickLogin uses inaudible tones to verify who you are. Your computer will play a series of sounds that humans can't hear, but your phone (and possibly your dog) can. The app on your phone then analyzes these sounds, and if everything is kosher it sends back a token to the program on your computer to log you in.
Welcome to the future. Especially since there's no product yet for us mortals to try.
Today SlickLogin has announced that they were picked up by Google.
Today we`re announcing that the SlickLogin team is joining Google, a company that shares our core beliefs that logging in should be easy instead of frustrating, and authentication should be effective without getting in the way. Google was the first company to offer 2-step verification to everyone, for free - and they're working on some great ideas that will make the internet safer for everyone. We couldn`t be more excited to join their efforts.
This seems like an exciting tech for Google's deep pockets to get behind. We're going to keep a close watch on this one.
