So you’re on a public computer and you need to access the desktop Gmail so badly but you’re really scared of entering your password on a public computer. Its fair to be scared, it might have a keylogger installed and incognito mode just won’t help.
Google has launched a new way to authorize and login with your credentials without actually logging in with password or keyboard onto any PC. It’s called Sesame.
How Google Gmail Sesame Authentication Works
It’s simple: Remote Autherization from your mobile. You personal mobile device’s browser is already logged-In with your Google credentials.
Step 1. Go ahead and Open http://accounts.google.com/sesame on the desktop browser where you need to access your gmail / google account.
Step 2. Launch your barcode scanner and scan the QR code that appears on /sesame. You’ll be asked to authenticate the PC for access to your Google / Gmail account.
You’ll automagically be logged into the Desktop PC. Remote authorization at its best!
