Google will make two-factor authentication the “default”

When trying to log into an account, a notification will be sent to the user’s smartphone in the form of an SMS or a call to confirm the login.

“Using a mobile device to log in gives people more secure and secure authentication than using passwords alone.” leads Mark Richer, Director of Product Management, Google The Verge.

The company previously wrote on its blog that 66% of Americans use the same password for accounts on most sites, making their “online life” insecure.
