Google Implements Two-Step Authentication Worldwide

In June 2011, many Gmail accounts were compromised by hackers. Passwords of many US officials, political activists and officials in different countries were stolen.

Ever since then, Google had been working on it’s Two Step Authentication method. This method has enhanced the security of Google account holders. This method requires password based authentication along with a verification code which is sent to the user either through voice, call/text or is generated on the user’s smartphone device via a Google app from which one is accessing his/her account.

New Airport Security Checkpoint Of The Future

The International Air Transport Association came forth with a mock up of a future security checkpoint system. Rather than removing your belts and shoes, and have TSA officials give you the royal treatment, passengers will simply walk through the machine and will receive a full body scan as they walk through the hall-like sensor.

Passengers will be sorted according to risk, and those who fly frequently will be automatically deemed less risky. No clue on whether racial profiling will play into who gets chosen for the high-risk passengers (those who pose a threat), but supposedly the system takes in a wide variety of factors when deciding.
