Google’s just bought very quiet start-up SlickLogin

Google has acquired Israeli start-up SlickLogin, which has created technology that lets you log in online by using almost-silent sound-waves sent between your computer and your phone to verify identity, rather than (or as well as) having to type in passwords.

No details have yet been released as to how much Google paid for the company.

SlickLogin said in a statement: “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.

“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. We couldn`t be more excited to join their efforts.”
