Meet Google's plan to end the passwords

Google is moving quickly with its plan to kill the traditional password. Dan Kaufman, director of advanced technology and equipment projects Google recently announced that the company is working with "several very large financial institutions" to test a new technology to replace the password.

This technology, called Trust API uses various sensors smartphone to determine if it's you or someone else who wants to access.

Several devices operating with the Android operating system Google already offer Smart Lock, which uses sensors that can scan your face, your voice, your movements and your location to see if the device must be unlocked without a password.

"In some devices, sensors learn the pattern of how you walk. If the accelerometer detects a walk that feels different, could block your phone," explains the company in a publication online on Smart Look.
