Google announced that they are rolling out the Passkeys password feature to all Google accounts and even workplace accounts. Passkeys are advanced password protection systems that Apple, Microsoft, and Google and a few others have come together to develop. So it is not just a Google thing, it is something that is developed across the industry. They have been talking about this for a long time, but now Google says they’re starting to roll it out to all Google accounts. Google also announced that they are releasing eight new top level domain names as part of their Google registry announcements. So there are some interesting new domain names like .DAD and .PhD. So if you’re a scholar you could look at a .PhD or if you’re having a family ministry or a Dads ministry, you can look at .DAD. Check out these eight new top level domains.
