The announcement has been made on Sunday (2/16/14) by Israeli start-up company on its home page.
SlickLogin home page says the following: “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.”
The company was established last summer to simplify computer login security, the Israeli business daily Globes reported. The company has not yet brought a product to market, and has no clients.
SlickLogin provides a revolutionary log-in identification that uses a smartphone to deliver an “ultrasonic frequency” to a nearby computer. The frequency is emitted after the user enters his or her password, thereby completing a two-stage process.
