Enable Google 2SV for Multifactor Authentication
Security Checkpoint Google 2SV can be enable for proactive protection on your Google account.
Google’s 2 Step Verification or Multifactor Authentication adds another layer of security to your Google account that will prevent more hacking attempts than simply using a password.
As we covered previously, authentication is proving you are who you say you are. Therefore, doing it several ways gives us a higher degree of confidence it’s actually you not some unauthorized punk snooping around.
Like other authentication systems it can be: something you know, something you have, or something you are. In the case of Google 2SV we are using a password (something you know) and a smartphone authenticator app or yubikey (something you have).
