Project Verify would let you confirm or deny logins for other apps and websites.

The four major US mobile carriers have unveiled a system that would let them manage your logins across any third-party website or app that hooks into it.

Project Verify” from a consortium of AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile US, and Sprint, was unveiled in a demo yesterday. It works similarly to other multi-factor authentication systems by letting users approve or deny login requests from other websites and apps, reducing the number of times users must enter passwords. The carriers’ consortium is putting the call out to developers of third-party apps and websites, who can contact the consortium for information on linking to the new authentication system.
