Google forced launching two-factor authentication for 150 million users
The two-factor authentication option will be automatically enabled for 150 million Google users and 2 million YouTube authors. This innovation is reported in the official Google blog.
"By the end of 2021, we plan to automatically connect 150 million Google users to two-factor authentication and require 2 million YouTube authors to also start using it," the company said in a statement.
Google stressed that two-factor authentication is the basis of security for the company's customers. The essence of this option is that when logging into your account on any Google service, the user must confirm that it is him through another authorized device. For example, if a person tries to open Google Mail via a computer, a notification will come to his mobile phone asking him to confirm authorization.
