  • Patent number: 10970385
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to sharing a user credential between computing devices. In some embodiments, a first computing device stores a set of user credentials usable to authenticate a user and receives, from a second computing device, a request for a user credential to be provided responsive to an authentication prompt associated with the second computing device. In such an embodiment, the request includes an indication of a service for which the authentication prompt is being presented. Based on the indication, the first computing device determines whether the stored set of user credentials includes a user credential relevant to the authentication prompt and presents a selection prompt asking a user of the first computing device to select a one of the stored set of user credentials to provide to the second computing device for authentication to the service, the relevant user credential being identified in the selection prompt.

  • Patent number: 10824709
    Abstract: Described is a system (and method) for automatically populating login credentials for an application such as a third-party application (or app) installed on a device. These applications are often associated with an entity that may operate or control a website, service, or another application. For example, browsers often store login credentials (e.g. username and password) of previously visited websites. Accordingly, the system may retrieve applicable login credentials for the application in response to verifying the application is authorized to be associated with the website associated with the retrieved password. Accordingly, the system may provide a convenient and safe mechanism to retrieve applicable login credentials even in instances where a developer of the application has not provided an explicit capability of such a feature.

  • Publication number: 20190372949
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to credential sharing for user authentication. In some embodiments, a first computing device maintains a credential manager that stores a plurality of user credentials usable to authenticate a user. The first computing device receives a request from the user to send one of the plurality of user credentials to a second computing device. In response to the request, the first computing device sends the user credential to the second computing device. The second computing device is configured to determine whether an application of the second computing device is presenting an authentication prompt to a user and, in response to determining that the authentication prompt is being presented, populate one or more fields of the authentication prompt with the user credential. In some embodiments, the second computing device is configured to store the user credential in a credential manager maintained by the second computing device.

  • Publication number: 20190372989
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to user authentication. In some embodiments, a first computing device receives, from a second computing device, a request for a user credential to be input into an authentication prompt associated with the second device. The first computing device determines a proximity associated with the second computing device based on a received wireless location beacon and, based on the request and the determined proximity, presents a selection prompt asking a user of the first computing device to select a user credential stored in the first computing device. The first computing device then provides the selected user credential to the second computing device to input into the authentication prompt. In some embodiments, the first computing device receives the wireless location beacon from a remote controller of the second computing device and determines a proximity based on a signal strength associated with the received location beacon.
