Choosing a complex password is indeed a great way to protect your account from being hacked, but currently using a complex password alone cannot guarantee that your account is safe from hacking.
This is what makes some services present a 2FA / two-factor authentication system so that every time a user logs in, they have to verify via email or via a smartphone.
Well, companies like Google have presented this 2FA option to their users for a long time. But now it has decided to activate this feature by default for all Google account users.
“Today we asked the person who had activated two-step verification (2SV) to confirm whether it was him through a simple process via Google notifications on a smartphone. Later we will activate 2SV to users automatically,” said Google.
This means that for users who have filled in information such as secondary email or phone numbers, the data will now be used to carry out the verification process if the user logs in to the account on another device.
This is a good step from Google to keep users’ Google accounts safe and not easily taken over by others. Moreover, now the 2FA process from Google is also simple and doesn’t take a long time.
