Bad is that as long as my data is stored on the servers of Google can use the system only on their services. We at SingleID do the same thing but as the user's personal data are stored in the phone there is no a central server, which can keep track of logins.

If you use Google.com, they already do.
If you watch YouTube, even without logging in your account, but solely as an IP record and cookies from the site, they already do.

1984, just accept it and get naked in front of the cameras, like everybody else.

You have gmail account? You dont need type that anymore! Another way to make gmail account: for faster and easier way to login.

As far as I dont like google politic and ideas, Overall all-in-one system is just easy to use and fast. If Microsoft or other company would make their ecosystem like that before google I would use their, but Google was one of first company that tried merge all they features in one account and now even if Im slowly move to other systems and sites its still hard to dumb gmail account.

Let me be honest.
I don't like the amount of data that Google has of us, and I don't have decent alternatives either because my business and outside environment has accepted them openly.

I take everything Google brings with a pinch of salt... A huge pinch, I might add.

Only companies with monopoly or big ones with almost unlimited resources do this, because they dont care if they lose some users or overall opinion about them gonna get down(read: Google, MS, Apple, FB).

Smaller companies that have best idea right now, and where not bought by those big ones(not yet...) need to really take care of user base and they actually care to make new features good and actual useful.
Give me one feature that was made by those companies it self and is really good AND WAS NOT FEATURE FROM SOFTWARE/PATENT OF COMPANY THAT THEY BOUGHT...
I actually tried searching it and most of them where ideas modified from other software/patents that they get or copy from other companies... I know that "this is how world roll" but not everywhere :D

Fantastic Google!! Yesterday When I wanted to change password on PC, I got a pop on mobile to confirm the same!! It's brilliant.

  • AnonD-405901

Honestly, I found fingerprint scanners much easier(not sure about safer) till now while logging. I love scanner in my iPhone as phone lock, every banking app, Amazon app ask for scan instead of passwords which is cool.

I got this notification a week ago as i tried to logon onto a new computer and google then asks you to select the device and it works great.
