I was so intrigued by the recent post in Lifehacker about how to use your smartphone to securely log into your Google account from an insecure computer that I blogged it - and just last week at that.
Hat tip to friend and colleague Dan Pinnington (bet it's a lot colder in Canada buddy) for letting me know that Google has pulled its Sesame app. When I verified Dan's note (and he was irked too), you get this message,
Hi there - thanks for your interest in our phone-based login experiment.
While we have concluded this particular experiment, we constantly experiment with new and more secure authentication mechanisms.
Stay tuned for something even better!
Dirk Balfanz, Google Security Team.
C'mon Dirk, bring it back - we LIKED it.
