Google Initiates A New Password Method


Cole Blubaum

Rounding out the internet as a whole, the glue of the phenomenon seems to be Google. The world’s most popular search engine, it was founded in 1998.

It is notorious for having a multi-step password software. At the rise of online hackers, Google has attempted to keep up by updating and securing their program as best they can. One of the methods currently being tested revolves around touch ID, facial recognition, and PIN. 

This updated security applies to apps and websites supported by Google. It is reviewed to be the strongest security method yet and there are high hopes for success. The primary focus of the passkey is to avoid people from infamously making weak passwords, such as password123, abcdefg123, etc. Google will not eliminate the option for a password, but it is recommended to try out the passkey.
