Android, authentication, on web sites, Google, password distribution
Some of the Google sites now allow secure authentication without a password on Android devices. The user can use biometric systems like the fingerprint scanning or (in the future) face detection, or by entering the PIN or unlock pattern you set for your smartphone. The novelty, for now, applies only to cases in which the user is already authenticated previously with your user name and password. For safety reasons, it may happen that Google will, occasionally, ask the user to confirm their identity.
From some year, Google is investing a lot to make the password obsolete; the software side, the security protocol FIDO2 allows you to implement these alternative methods, undoubtedly the most fast and convenient (and safe, especially for those who use "123456" or "password"...) and perfectly integrated and standardized. The interesting aspect of FIDO2 is that the data of authentication - fingerprint, PIN, or any other object - they are never sent outside of the device. Is the device that tells the site that the user is who he claims to be. In the case of traditional passwords, however, this is always sent to a remote server. It is a little more risk.Three cameras for maximum fun at a price the top? Huawei Mate 20 Pro, on offer today from Mobzilla at 419 euros, or from ePrice to 513 euro. CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING
