How to Easily Enable Google Account 2-Step Verification

Geekers - In an effort to secure your Google account, activating the 2-step verification feature on your Google account is highly recommended. With this feature, not just anyone can access your Google account, even if that person knows your email address and password.


Every time someone logs into your Gmail account, Google Account sends you a verification code via SMS or telephone. So people who want to log into your Google account without entering the verification code will be rejected and cannot enter your account.



To activate this 2-step verification feature, you must first add an active cellphone number (your own number, not someone else's). If you haven't added it yet, you can read the tutorial here.
