From November 9, Google will require users to activate the 2-step verification (2SV) feature. Last month, the business announced plans to automatically deploy this security feature for millions of users. 2SV is one of the most dependable techniques to prevent unauthorised access to accounts and networks, according to the business.
In a blog post last month, the company stated, “By the end of 2021, we plan to auto-enroll an additional 150 million Google users in 2SV and require 2 million YouTube creators to turn it on.”
If you have not yet enabled 2-step verification on your account, you will receive an email or message from the company about 7 days before the security feature is automatically enabled for you. You can currently turn off 2SV after it has been switched on automatically, however doing so makes your account significantly less safe.
What is 2-step verification?
In the event that your password is stolen, 2-Step Verification (also known as two-factor authentication) adds an extra layer of security to your account. After you’ve set up 2SV, you’ll log in with your password and your phone in two steps. You’ll need to input a code that will be provided to your phone through text, voice call, or mobile app once you’ve entered your password as usual.
How to turn on 2-step verification?
To enable 2SV, log into your Google account > click Security from the navigation panel > under ‘Signing in to Google,’ select 2-Step Verification and then Get started. Then, as directed on the screen, follow the steps.
Aside from that, Google is releasing a feature in the Google app that will allow you to access all of the passwords you’ve saved in Google Password Manager directly from the Google app menu.
