I ♥ GOOGLE 2-Step Authentication

As part of a regular feature our resident ‘Google Guru’ Andy Guy @DHSBAndyGuy will be posting out tips and treats related to all things Google.

Two step authentication is a great way of protecting services such as Google, Dropbox & many more. Essentially when you log onto a site protected by 2-step authentication you enter your username & password then the service prompts you for a code sent by text to your mobile phone. To get started using 2-step authentication on a variety of sites check out this great LifeHacker article. The video below also gives a great overview of 2-step authentication on Google.
