Google Acquires SlickLogin to Work on Password Security

Profile photo of xian Submitted by xian February 17, 2014 Website: mashable.com

Google acquired SlickLogin, an early-stage Israeli startup that had been developing alternative web-login options, the company announced Sunday. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Started by three graduates from the Israel Defense Forces, SlickLogin was working on a way to let users log in to particular websites on their computer by holding up their phones in front of it. The startup, which was less than 6 months old, had yet to release a commercial product or raise funding.

“We set out to improve security while still making it simple for people to log in,” SlickLogin’s founders wrote in a statement on its website. “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.”

    Although no details have been shared on the specifics of what SlickLogin is offering, there is no doubt that many in the tech world would be interested in this Google’s acquisition.

    For a start-up to have been bought by Google in just 6 months of operation means a lot. More so, SlickLogin talks about password security, which is of major issues for individuals, companies, and governments.

    I know that in the next couple of weeks we get to truly see how Google and SlickLogin are going to helps web users improve security of personal data!

    Password has evolved and Google is trying to develop an alternative means of securing accounts. It has same concept as 2-factor authentication but in this case a random generated sound will be sent to your mobile which will require you to play it back to access your account.

    I will be looking forward to a new way of logging in to an account that will be easy and difficult to hack.
