Google's No Password feature - Security Sucks these days
Now i heard that Google is working on an api to provide password-less entry for android users. Your account to be recognized by phone. Such a dumb move.

This seems like such a non-issue. They're replacing passwords with a cert or token. It's going from one form of 1FA to another. Darron Wyke

Google is the biggest search engine these days and they must have made some sense before making the decision of removing the password from Android users. The major focus for every big business is to make the process user friendly as much as they can, and that's what Google has planned for it's users when they gonna use Google's product on their Android. So it's too early to say anything, we must wait and see what changes are being made, but hopefully it should be free from vulnerability. Anonymous
