To make user experience better, Google has been implementing a lot of new things since the day it became live. In the latest effort to make it easier for users to log in on different devices, Google is set to be testing the password free login options.
A screenshot, shared by a Google user on Reddit shows a new interface of Google Login, which will let you authorize your account on a mobile device and whenever you are trying to log into the same account from any other device, you will get a notification on your mobile device, approving the request will let you sign into the account on the respective device.
“We’ve invited a small group of users to help test a new way to sign-in to their Google accounts, no password required. ‘Pizza’, ‘password’, and ‘123456’ — your days are numbered,” a Google spokesperson told media.
It seems that Google has realized the security threat attached with using password everytime you are on a public computer. Using this new trick, users will not have to input password at any other device than his own mobile phone. However, in case you do not have access to your phone, the login with password will still be an option.
There is still quite some time in this feature becoming public, however, if it happens, it will surely be a convenient option for a lot of users who frequently signin from multiple devices and are not comfortable entering password everytime.
Before Google, Microsoft has implemented a similar feature, not the exact. The outlook app on your phone helps you to authorize the login attempts when Microsoft feels something suspicious.
