In a low-key presentation at I/O 2016, Google revealed that Abacus should be in developers’ hands by the end of the year.

Project Abacus is a sign-in approach for Android that ditches passwords in favor of a trust system that uses patterns (such as location, typing speed and voice) to verify your identity.

According to sources, Large financial institutions will start trying it out in June.

This follows university tests that began last year.

How Abacus works is that it determines patterns based on data collection that’s already taking place.

While this looks an alternative, it is kinda scary especially when it comes to privacy concerns.
