Passwords are a big weakness. With this statement, Google decided some time ago to fight against their detection, abuse or forgetting. It introduced stronger warnings for users and deployed new tools from the segment 2FA, or so-called two-phase login / authentication. For example, if a Google Account holder has security settings set up today, he or she will be able to confirm your login by clicking on a mobile notification. And the American giant even intends to enforce these principles. A few hours ago, he announced a two-phase login to a Google account will be mandatory.
The novelty will concern users who have complete security settings in order. It is possible verify at a special address. 2SV, or two-step verification, as Google calls its function, will be a new matter of course for all mentioned accounts. The exact date is not yet known, but it will be “soon”. Google also accompanied the planned mandatory two-phase login to the user account with interesting statistics.
Two-thirds of Americans reportedly have one password for multiple services, which is certainly not good practice. Reach for conscience if you’re not the same. Of course, when one is discovered, several other accounts are at risk. Google notes that the problem with passwords in this regard is that the weaker one is, of course, easy to break, but a few more complex ones people don’t want or can’t remember. That’s why he’s trying to push 2FA. If you want to turn on the same protection, for example on Facebook, we have recently compiled instructions for this.
How are you doing with setting and managing passwords?
