Thanks to Google's research
Just one note; the only company that can resolve password issue is Google. They have enough knowledge base to identify a workable solution for this username-password pair problem.

a cumulative Trust Score
 

" ... a cumulative Trust Score derived from usage patterns calculated on the user's current location, facial recognition, speed, voice, and typing style ..."

I wonders if there is any weighting on these, facial high, location is low for example.

I hope so. There should have not been a start of password-keepers, they a big potential risk for the end users.

I hope this would work but there are ten million different ways this could go wrong and not work for the regular users. Current location? Speed? These are big variables.

Re: Step in the right direction
Interesting. Can this be the end of password-keepers such as Dashlane? If so, they had a very short life.

Step in the right direction
This is defnitely a step forward in terms of security best practices considering how weak of a safeguard passwords are. The success of this however may be determined by the false rejection rate of the biometrics.
