Google wants to eliminate passwords using your smartphone

Google wants to eliminate passwords using your smartphone

The chase continues. Google is currently testing a new way to connect to your Google Account. Once activated in your security settings and a phone linked to the account, you can access your Google account online from your computer by  clicking on your phone to allow this connection. A simple alert ( YES / NO ).

No more password needed!

Actually, not really. The password is always required. If Google eventually puts this technology in place soon and you lose your device or it is not within the reach or the battery is discharged, the password will always be useful.

We must also think you might change device or not wanting to use this function anymore, then again the password will be required. We see that the cell phone will be increasingly assigned an new authenticator role.

In this sense, as well as online payments, few people will want to have an inexpensive device that might not be fully protected. The phone is now a virtual wallet, keys of the house or the car, an unlimited access to our life!

This is not so far as we have said recently, one year or two at most, and the smartphone will be more than ever critically essential.

Google Authenticator protection activated on all accounts

Google Authenticator protection activated on all accounts

Internet Cloud Canada is proud to offer a new tool for protection against fraud and piracy: Authentication in 2 factors via the Google Authenticator application.

Your account is now protected at a high level. You can get the FREE Google Authenticator application via the online store of your favorite mobile device, such as the Apple App Store for IPhone or IPad by example.

You log on as usual to your account with us, but once you have activated the two factor protection, a code generated by the application is also asked to complete the process. These codes are generated every 30 seconds.

It is therefore less likely that you will be hacked, if the hacker needs both your usernames and passwords in addition to your mobile device!

Internet Cloud Canada has always been concerned to offer you the highest security and we continue to apply our plan with this FREE addition.

Configure this protection now!

Google abandons SHA-1 encryption soon!

Google abandons SHA1 encryption soon!

Google handles well his security plan on the web and it seems to stick to it. Google waits hardly a week between each announcement of a new measure to increase the security or change an aspect of it. When it is not on its search engine, it is on Chrome, its flagship browser.

Websites and browsers encryptent data exchanged between them. A digital signature is created for each data packet to ensure that these data are not altered when transiting servers to servers.

The SHA-1 type of encryption for security certificates has some weaknesses and recommendation made by security authorities in 2011 was to abandon it on 1st January 2016.

Google will go in that sense, and in the course of January 2016, the release of Chrome 48 will present an error when you browse a Web site only with the SHA-1 encryption type.

The error should look like this:

SHA-1 encryption type error

In addition, on 1 January 2017 it will no longer be an alert to be displayed but an error that will completely block the possibility of visiting the site.

Make sure your web hosting company offers a ready SHA-2 environment for 2016 , such as Internet Cloud Canada which has already made the move since a while! Otherwise, your websites will display errors and of course you will lose the trust of your customers because they will not not buy or look at an insecure website!
