Google has acquired another startup SlickLogin, this time from Israel with love towards the password security of its vast catalog of web services.
SlickLogin’s homepage confirmed today that it has joined Google along with its patented sound-based smartphone technology for security and it has shifted its office to Google’s Tel-Aviv office in Israel.
The note in SlickLogin’s homepage reads:
“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.”
With this acquisition of a security firm related to the login security and passwords, Google will be expanding its ways to authenticate users to its services such as Google Plus, YouTube and Gmail. The search giant has already introduced a two-factor authentication technology to all Google users, but the method is not a user-friendly way for the secure login.
However, the SlickLogin’s patented technology allows users to authenticate by placing their smartphone near to the computer and the inaudible sound output from the smartphone authenticate the users to the services seamlessly and hassle-free.
Both Google and SlickLogin hasn’t revealed more details about the acquisition, such as terms and the price of the deal. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
