Now as many of faces security issues like still password by various malware's and keystrokes and many other ways.

But Google started a 2 step verification system to adds an extra layer of security to your Google Account.

In addition to your username and password, you'll enter a code that Google will send you via text or voice message upon signing in.

2-step verification drastically reduces the chances of having the personal information in your Google account stolen by someone else. Why? Because hackers would have to not only get your password and your username, they'd have to get a hold of your phone.

It is an optional service for you.


To activate this service just to go to 2 Steps verification Page

  1. Login here with your username and password.
  2. Go 2 steps verification page.
  3. And follow the instructions.

If this link doesn't take you to the 2-step verification page, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Gmail Account and click Settings (in the top right corner).
  2. Under the Accounts tab, click Google Account settings.
  3. Under Security, click Edit next to 2-step verification.
  4. Follow the steps in the 2-step verification guide to set up 2-step verification.
  5. Administrators can point users to Getting started with 2-step verification for step-by-step instructions.

How you sign in with 2-step verification

The next time the user signs in to taccount on a new browser or device, they enter their username and password as usual. They're then prompted with a second page to enter a verification code. When your user checks Remember verification for this computer, they're only prompted to enter a verification code once every 30 days per browser or after deleting their browser's cookies. Your users should not check this if they're at a public or shared computer.

How you sign in with 2-step verification

Signing in with 2-step verification is easy.

1. Go to the sign-in page and enter your username and password like you normally do.

2. Then you’ll be asked for a six-digit code, which you'll get from your phone. If you want, when you enter your code, you can choose to trust your computer -- this means you won't be asked for a code again when you sign in from this computer. If you sign in from another computer, however, you’ll be asked for a code.


What’s happen if you lost your phone ?

If you lose your phones or otherwise can't receive codes via SMS, voice call, or Google Authenticator, you can use backup codes to sign in. These codes are available on your Accounts overview page and were first offered to you at the end of the 2-step verification setup.

We recommend you store your codes wherever you keep your other valuable items. Like the codes on your phone, backup codes are only valuable to someone if they manage to also steal your password.

Creating and viewing a set of backup codes

To create a new set of backup codes:

  1. Sign in to your accounts at https://www.google.com/accounts/SmsAuthConfig.
  2. Look for the “Printable backup codes” area.
  3. Click Show/Generate codes.
  4. If you are fine using the current set of backup codes, you can print or download them. If you believe this set of codes might have been stolen or you’ve used many of the backup codes, you can generate a new set by clicking Generate new codes.
