How to set up two-factor authentication in Google
Monday, August 26, 2013/
Protecting your online accounts is as serious as protecting any other type of critical data. You don’t want to find yourself hacked.
Google includes a handy two-factor authentication system that not many people actually use. However, it can save you when you really need it.
To set it up, you need to head to your account settings page by going to www.google.com/settings.
Then, you need to click on “security” and then press “edit” to turn on two-factor authentication. Just follow all the prompts – including using a mobile number for text authentication – and then your account will be secure.
