If you have a Google account then it is a good idea to use the company’s 2-Step verification. Now Google is looking to make the feature easier to use with some changes that will still keep your account safe.
Instead of you having to enter a new code each time you sign in with a different device, Google will now ask you to authorize that device from your smartphone.
We know that security is one of your top concerns as a Google Apps admin and that many of you require your employees to turn on 2-Step Verification (2SV) to keep their accounts safe. There are multiple ways your end users can approve sign-in requests via 2SV—by tapping a Security Key, by entering a verification code sent to their phone or, starting today, by approving a prompt like the one below that will pop up on their phone.
This new feature will work with Android and iOS devices, although you will need the Google Search app installed on your iOS device in order to use it.
You can find out more information on the changes coming to Google’s 2-Step verification over at their website at the link below.
