Google has an awesome solution for logging into your account from a public computer without typing in your password. Perfect for avoiding keylogging. Keylogging is the act of logging the keys being tapped on a keyboard. Usually this is done with software, but there are other ways to keylog.

Lifehacker posted a great article on using a QR codereader to login without using the keyboard.

"First, point the (insecure) computer's browser at accounts.google.com/sesame. Now pull out your Android or iPhone, and take a shot of the QR code that pops up on screen. This will signal to Google's servers that you're at this terminal, and will log you into your Google account without any further typing."

Pretty neat solution from the Google....

Nogui wow that is awesome, I find it very inovative. There are many people today who do not even know what a QR Code is, I gues the will not know what to do!
