Google has confirmed that it's testing a new, password-less login system that allows users to sign in to their Google account with just their phones. The functionality was first revealed by a Reddit user who received an invite to test it.

everything including location,call history,system logs, other app data etc.

bug, 23 Dec 2015I'm trying hard to imagine how this is not a bad idea. And I hat... moreyou can still login using the old fashion way!

Username
Password

I actually wait when google finally remove that annoying @gmail.com from login name.... its not part of name of account or its not any part of security, its just annoying way for google to say "yes, yes, we gonna put our names everywhere, even on your login"

Because for now its like facebook or your bank would force you to put @fb.com @ at the end of your login...

Beside typing password is not a problem, you type it maybe once per week(most of people use their own devices where they have auto-login) so what is the point of spending about 5-7 sec to take your phone, unlock it, accept request and click OK...
Typing my password that is 14 sign take me abut 3-4 sec even on phone keyboard... SO WHAT IS THE POINT OF IT?

I'm trying hard to imagine how this is not a bad idea. And I hate two factor authentication for exactly the same reason: requiring a phone to log in means you can't log in if the phone isn't available.
