Google is officially putting their stamp of approval on password managers. Millions of people use password managers, like Dashlane, as they are the best way to secure account login/authentication.
Dashlane and Google just announced that they are establishing a new open-source API that will enhance user security. Google is looking to innovate beyond current app authentication and turned to Dashlane to lead the charge in this collaboration. The API is also platform agnostic and therefore Apple could use it.
This is a big next step toward the future of app authentication for Google; delivering what the market is demanding – seamless and universally-available app authentication with the choice of secure provider.
“This is an important initiative for our industry and for the state of user security,” said Emmanuel Schalit, CEO of Dashlane. “Collectively, we are committed to increasing user security and believe that the best way to do this is to champion open source security projects--which Dashlane has done earlier this year by becoming the first password manager to adopt the FIDO Alliance’s Universal Second Factor (U2F) authentication standard. We look forward to expanding this collaborative project that will benefit the entire security industry.”Read More https://www.dashlane.com...
