Sounds pretty cool. Right. What if it came true? Are you struggling to come up with long strings of complex capital, and lower case letters, numbers, and simples? Well, there's a theory that says that so yesterday that's the hope anyway. I'm Jefferson Graham with USA today. You're listening to talking tech in fascinating interview with Google product manager, Mark Risher in the verge this week, he laid out his vision for why those passwords. We've been told create don't actually. Help. He's said to have no bearing on fishing, no bearing on password breaches, no bearing on password, re-use. We think this is Google that it's more important to reduce the total number of passwords out there. Well, gosh, I agree. Don't you cook? He has an other words, all that time you've been forced to spend trying to create tougher to crack. Passwords is a waste at that, at least that's the way he appears to see it. I know that talking tech listeners agree with me that anything we could do to eliminate the concent- typing passwords during our daily days would be most welcome. But how are we going to get their Google? Solution is the single sign on feature, which still requires a password, and has Google authenticate, your identity for a second layer of authority, the text messages or via the Google smartphone app. Apple just introduced its answer to Google sign in with an alternative that will be introduced to the.

Facebook, and Google been at it for a long time. A lot of people don't trust signing on Facebook because the, you want your data with Facebook, once you've signed into a website who knows what they're doing with it. Apple is all about privacy and saying that they're not going to do anything with your data. And also, I'd like this new system because it's going to use face ID and touch ID biometrics to bypass the password clicks, the snag here though, is I think it's going to take apple. Years before you have a lot of merchants signing up for this program, you'll have app developers, but target Home Depot WalMart, getting their websites to even agree to put this on is going to take a like I said, it's gonna take years, but it's worth dreaming about I love the idea, and I like the system from Google that when you try to sign on, on the computer it sends you to the g mail app and has you type in a digit that you see on the web instead of typing in your password.
