Google Prompt Makes 2-Step Verification Easier

Google Prompt Makes 2-Step Verification Easier

Google offers you as many tools as possible to keep your account safe. Keeping your accounts and information safe just got a little easier with Google Prompt. You may already be familiar with the 2-Step Verification (2SV) process which is recommended whenever it can be used. The 2SV process can be a text message to your phone, a code entered from an authenticator app or now from a Google Prompt on your phone.

You can now choose any of these sign-in options but going to the My Account section of your Google account.

Step 1. Go to My Account and login to your Google account.

Step 2. Click the Sign-in & Security section.

Step 3. Look for the Signing in to Google section and click the 2-Step Verification section.
