Google Acquires Slicklogin
Google has reportedly bought Israeli security startup SlickLogin. The company’s three-man team announced the deal, saying Google shared their beliefs that logging in should be easy and authentication effective without frustrations or barriers. SlickLogin uses smartphones and high-frequency sounds for identity verification at websites.
There is speculation that the deal is worth several million euros although the terms have not been revealed. Google likes shopping in Israel. It has recently snapped up spreadsheet company iRows, LabPixies entertainment, and mapping service Waze.
