Google is the process of testing a login method where the user is no longer need to enter his password. Instead logged with the smartphone, which the user should be logged, and a confirmation prompt.

The new login method is not widely communicated, but seems to be part of a silent test. This is evident from the fact that a Google user has gained access to the new feature, as discovered Android Police based on a Reddit thread Rohit Paul. For the new method to log into a compatible smartphone with Google needed screensavers recommends, though the latter is not obligatory. Which smartphones are just right is unclear, but the Nexus 6P Paul works anyway.

The system works by providing the user via the smart phone access to the account on another device. For example, anyone wants to log on to the laptop on the smartphone gets a prompt; thereby the user to indicate that he or she actually wants to log on to the device, after which no further action. The user is then automatically logged after confirmation on the laptop, without having to need the password.

It is unclear whether Google wants to use the system widespread. Probably the test should determine whether this way of logging is suitable to bring out publicly. Because the Internet giant itself has not released information is unclear how long the test will take.
