Trust Score

Search Engine giant Google is all set to begin a new login method that could replace passwords with a ‘trust-based’ system that analyses how you use your phone.

The company has proposed ‘trust scores’ that will chalk out the need to remember the numerical and linguistic credentials needed to unlock a phone. In its place the company has suggested ‘Trust API’ for Android smartphones. The Trust API would work on a number of personal indicators including your voice, your face, how you type, how you swipe, how you move and your location in relation to known Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth devices.

Trust scores would vary from games to banking apps where security is at high risk i.e. a banking app would require higher trust scores than a gaming app. The Trust API is part of the Project Abacus which was unveiled at Google’s I/O developer conference. The trust score determines whether the person using the phone is actually you or not.

The most wonderful and precious element of universe is the human life which can only be guided by the right knowledge and right attitude. So, here is an ocean of knowledge, both in English and Hindi encompassing every detail and each facet of human life which ‘one must know’ in order to grow and attain the summits of success.
