SlickLogin has today announced via its website that it “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.” And has since been confirmed by Google themselves.
The acquisition will allow SlickLogin’s software that emits a sound based password from a smartphone to be used with a website for two-factor authentication, which will presumably be used with Google’s own authenticator app to better their own security, and the security of website that use the software, although Google has yet to confirm their plans.
The sound that is emitted is a high frequency one, and is one that can’t be heard by most human ears, allowing users to create a much more secure two-factor authentication system.
“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,” SlickLogin wrote on its website. “We couldn`t be more excited to join their efforts.”
