Google Introduces 2-step Verification for Gmail

. February 10, 2011 . 0 Comments

Google has introduced an advanced opt-in security feature called 2-step verification that makes your Google Account more secure by helping to verify that you’re the real owner of your account.

2-step verification requires two independent factors for authentication, much like you might see on your banking website: your password, plus a code obtained using your phone. Over the next few days, you’ll see a new link on your Account Settings page.
