At our company we use 2-Step Verification. Honestly I look back at all the time I didn’t use 2-Step and it freaks me out a little bit.
Now my Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google and many other apps and serviced have a 2-Step added to them.
Google has used Security Keys like this:
And they are awesome, but when I don’t have it on me I get aggravated.
It too is good, but it also can be a hassle.
Starting Today you can receive prompts like this on your phone instead of typing in a code:
You can now choose any 2-Step option in Sign-in & Security > Signing in to Google. 2-Step Verification section of My Account.
- You can’t currently have a Security Key and the Google prompt enabled at the same time.
- Data Connection is required to use the Google Prompt.
- Android users will need to update Google Play Services to use the Google Prompt.
- iOS users ill need the Google Search app installed on their phone to use Google prompt.
Whichever one you choose will be great, just make sure you have 2-Step on your accounts!
