Is Google Testing 2 Step Authentication with Chrome OS + Android + Bluetooth? A couple of bug reports showing up on the code base indicates something similar.
2-step verification adds an extra layer of security to your users’ Google Apps accounts by requiring them to enter a verification code in addition to their username and password, when signing in to their account.
At present, there is a Google Authentication app for Android and iOS. However, you need to have your phone handy, for this to work. If your phone is not near you to look at the screen to see the pass code, this feature will create a little bit of inconvenience for you.
By bringing in bluetooth here, Google is trying to make this process a little more easier. Even though we do not have full details of how this is going to work, it is sure that the new system will make things much more easier.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Navigate to http://www.google.com/
2. Focus the search box.
3. Activate Google Authenticator over BlueTooth
3697 says Bluetooth: OTP Authenticator (2 way and 1 way).
Now, one problem with these bug reports – they are all pretty old. So, what happened to this process? Are they still working on it ? Did they cancel the whole thing?
Do you guys know anything more about this?
