The Google News Thread

Google is running a pilot project to see if these USB-based Yubico log-on devices might help it solve the password problem.

“We’d like your smartphone or smartcard-embedded finger ring to authorize a new computer via a tap on the computer, even in situations in which your phone might be without cellular connectivity,” the Googlers write.

The future may not exactly be password-free, but it will at be least free of those complex, hard-to-remember passwords, says Grosse. “We’ll have to have some form of screen unlock, maybe passwords but maybe something else,” he says, “but the primary authenticator will be a token like this or some equivalent piece of hardware.”

That means that if someone steals your card or your smart-ring, you’d better report it stolen pretty quickly.

To change your edition click any of the options listed in the menu. For example, to switch to the German edition, you'd select "Deutschland" from the drop-down menu.

If you have a personalized Google News page, you will be redirected to this personalized edition by default whenever you're signed in to your Google Account. You can set which edition is personalized, and therefore your default, by following these steps:

Make sure you're signed in.
Navigate to the country edition you prefer.
Click on the Personalize your news button, a gear icon at the top of the page. You'll be asked whether or not you'd like to delete any existing personalization settings in an other edition. Click Yes to continue.
