Google Plans To Kill Passwords By 2017

Google Trust API Plans to Replace Your Passwords with Trust Score

Swati Khandelwal | May 24, 2016

The importance of increasing online security around personal information has risen due to the increase in cyber attacks and data breaches over recent years.
I find it hilarious people are still choosing terrible passwords to protect their online accounts.
The massive LinkedIn hack is the latest in the example that proves people are absolutely awful at picking passwords. The data breach leaked 167 Million usernames and passwords online, out of which "123456" was used by more than 750,000 accounts, followed by "LinkedIn" (172,523 accounts), and "password" (144,458 accounts).

The Google Trust API (Project Abacus) will incorporate biometric data, such as the way you type on your keyboard. Source:
