Google will innovate beyond today's security, she did say the company is experimenting with hardware-based tokens
Ah, sounds more secure - the nice part of a hardware-token is authentication; that's what this is about. It's not about security. Google "needs" to know who you are.

Yes, you're more "secure" if Google knows your phone-number.

..right. And hardware-tokens for those without a phone?

..and you're going to take on "passwords" with that "plan"? Laugh | :laugh:
