Sometimes we all forget our account passwords and on many occasions we never remember them so we are forced to go through the process of changing them again and again. Well, Google has taken up measures that will help its users in that sense.
According to Dashlane – a password managing company – Google has embarked on a project that will enable users to log into their mobile accounts securely and easily with the help of stored passwords. This system is called Open Yolo which stands for ‘You Only Log Once’ and it will be developed in partnership with companies that create password managers. The purpose of said managers is to create, story and then apply your passwords for various websites so you won’t have to remember them every single time you are asked for them.
Unfortunately, in our world today, you can’t really do without passwords when you log on to any website or app and the more websites you use, the more passwords and details you have to remember, unless you only use one password – but you can still forget that one. Not only that, but no matter how complicated you think your password is, someone could still hack it and gain access to all of your data.
Sure, there are alternatives to passwords like iris or fingerprint readers but they have only just begun to be implemented and it will take a while for them to reach every known service.
As a result, the best bet so far is to integrate password managers into the website and app that you log on to. They are really very useful in dealing with passwords and there are many out there to pick from: LastPass, Roboform, Dashlane, 1Password. They all do the same thing and the Open Yolo system will supposedly offer a single, seamless logging process that taps into whatever manager you use. Right now, the system is focused on creating a login process for Android apps.
If you’re a developer interested in trying out the Open Yolo system, you can download it as an open API and if you’re a password manager creator, feel free to contribute with your own technology to it.
