Remembering the password for each app on an Android phone is going to be history. According to a BuzzFeed report, Google is planning to launch Android M, its next version of the Android app, which will require fingerprint authentication. Android users with this new feature can log into their preferable app without entering a password.
The report states that the search giant is expected to announce the new feature next week at its annual keynote developer conference Google I/O which will be held in San Francisco from May 28 to 29.
In today’s technological world, mobile users look for a more user-friendly, easy-to-use device that provides more security with less complexity. An average smartphone user uses 25 apps on his/her mobile but faces difficulty while remembering the password for every app.
According to the report, though Google plans to roll out the new feature next week, iOS users are already accustomed to fingerprint authentication and are convenient with TouchID instead of using the password.
Fingerprint authentication can also be used for mobile payment as Apple has already implemented with their ApplePay service, which is considered to be the game changer in the online money transaction industry.
