With growing dependence on technological modes of communication and connection, there has emerged a need to protect your information and accounts more than ever.
A complicated password, with special characters and figures, is not enough to protect all the images, information and account details saved in your Google account. If you are in a habit of using similar passwords for more than one site or clicking on links attached to the e-mail messages, there are high chances that your password would get stolen. To strengthen the security of your account and to keep hackers at bay, switch to two- factor authentication.
Two-factor authentication modifies the entire signing-in process. Besides entering your account password, this authentication process requires you to enter the code sent to your phone via text messages, voice calls or the Google mobile app.
This security process ensures that no one else gets access to your account and personal details. Even if someone gets hold of your account password, they would not be able to log in without the security key or unique code. Even the security key feature has been uniquely crafted, keeping in mind the loopholes. The security key can only be used once within the stipulated time. If one fails to enter it within the stipulated time, they would have to restart the entire process.
