2-Step Verification Protects You From Hackers Did you know that Google offers 2-step login verification for Gmail accounts? The feature has been around a while, and now Google has written a reminder for all users who need an extra layer of security for their Gmail account and other services connected to it. In addition to logging into Gmail with your email and password, with 2-step verification you'll have to go through the added trouble of entering a code Google will send to your phone. This will "approve" the computer you're currently logging in from for 30 days, so you don't have to do this every time you log in. If you have a smartphone, you can also generate the code on your phone using the Google Authenticator app.
