Chrome 93 will enable desktops to directly read the verification code on your Android Phones saving you from inserting those digits

How many times while signing up on desktop websites did you have to put in your cell number and then receive a code and confirm your verification to enable access to that site and complete the process. This can be a hassle if you don't have your phone around considering that the code is valid for like a few seconds only and even if you have your cell with you, you have to extra careful with the digits. However, for those who don't like this verification process we have got some good news for you.

Chrome is taking a new advanced turn in the security world and is working towards a technology which will make your desktop read the code sent to your phone automatically for website verification, without you having to dig out your phone. Though cool, the question remains how will they be able to do it?

This new verification process will only be available on Chrome 93 and none of the software’s before that. For this to work, the first priority is that the user should have the same Gmail accounts on both his mobile and desktop computers to login to chrome and have an Android phone as a hand set.

Once all these requirements are completed, Chrome 93's new WebOTP (Web One Time Password) will be activated and any website which works on this similar feature WebOTP will easily be able to detect if your phone has received the password and will verify your authenticity.

Hence through this, Android user will be hassle free from digit insertion on any website for verification purposes.

However, what needs to be noted for this is that the feature is only accessible to Android users because it is dependent on the Chromium web engine and hence does not work for iOS users, though we may never know it may pop up for iOS users pretty soon.

What needs to be appreciated though is the advancement the tech life has taken. From the internet and high profile applications being so weak ten to fifteen years ago, we have come a long way with better applications and mire trusted and advanced software’s which is great and we cannot wait to see what the future in technology has in store for us.
