Google’s latest bite is SlickLogin, a startup that aims to make authentication simpler and safer by using sonic login codes on phones. Neither Google or SlickLogin haven’t made any details available just yet, but SlickLogin’s site confirms that “the team is joining Google,” at the Tel-Aviv, Israel office. See press release below.
