Google is looking to kill off Android passwords with its Project Abacus and instead of using passwords Google will use a new Trust API to log you into your device and apps.
The Google Trust API gives a trust score based on a number of factors, like location, facial recognition and more to log you into your device without the need for passwords.
“We have a phone, and these phones have all these sensors in them. Why couldn’t it just know who I was, so I don’t need a password? I should just be able to work,” said Dan Kaufman, head of advanced technology and projects at Google, speaking at the company’s I/O developer conference.
Google are expected to start testing out this new feature on Android some time this summer and it could possibly launch by the end of the year.
