CBS News has learned that Google is considering letting users keep their Google account passwords for as long they keep them up to date, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
Google is one of several companies that are rolling out security features in their products that users can use to lock their accounts and keep them safe.
The company is also one of the most vocal opponents of the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, which the bill was designed to stop.
Google has said that it would not use its data to track people and that the company would instead store users’ Google credentials and use that data to help police.
The bill has stalled in the Senate and is being debated by the House.
It is still unclear what Google would do if it does decide to give users the option to keep their passwords.
