Want an easier way to log into your Gmail account? How about a quick tap on your computer with the ring on your finger?

 

This may be closer than you think. Google’s security team outlines this sort of ring-finger authentication in a new research paper, set to be published late this month in the engineering journal IEEE Security & Privacy Magazine. In it, Google Vice President of Security Eric Grosse and Engineer Mayank Upadhyay outline all sorts of ways they think people could wind up logging into websites in the future — and it’s about time.

 

2012 may have been the year that the password broke. It seemed like everyone on the internet received spam e-mail or desperate pleas for cash — the so-called “Mugged in London” scam — from the e-mail accounts of people who had been hacked. And Wired’s own Mat Honan showed everyone just how damaging a hack can be.

A really interesting idea. 

What is your opinion ?

Interesting to think that we could one day be using the rings on our fingers or our smartphones instead of passwords to access our emails . I think this probably makes us more vulnerable to hacking, phones/rings are very easy to loose - What are do you think ? Would you prefer it this way or the traditional password way ? - HK
