Google’s strongest security, do you need it?
Do you want the reassurance of knowing your Google account is properly secured? Have you had your Google account compromised before and never want to have to go through that mess again?
Previously we have written articles on important steps for all Google users (this means anyone that has a Gmail or GSuite account). Here are the most important ones:
If you don’t have 2FA (two factor authentication) enabled yet, you should probably do that first and then come back and read on. Sadly, only 10% of Google users have enabled 2FA although it has been available for over 7 years and is dead simple to use. Don’t be in that 10%!
Google has recently released an even stronger form of authentication utilizing a physical device instead of a 2 factor code you receive via SMS or an app on your device. This may not be for everyone, but if you want the strongest protection for your Google account make sure you read all about it on their site here: Google Advanced Protection Program
So in review, if you don’t have 2FA enabled yet, you should that now. If you want even stronger protection, maybe this new Google device is for you.
Don’t wait until it’s too late before securing your online accounts.
