Keep hackers at bay with two-step verification for your Google Account - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we will see how we can secure your Google account so that it can be impossible to break. Specifically, we will talk about the option "2-step verification" or "XNUMX step verification" offered by Google for its users in order to protect your account very well.
As the name suggests, this option adds a second step that must be taken when we want to log in to our Google account. The "6-step verification" option uses your phone (it doesn't have to be a smartphone, it can be a regular phone) so if someone knows your account name and password, they won't be able to access your account if they don't have access. and on your phone. The two-step verification involves adding a phone number that later, each time you log in to your account from a new device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, other computer), after entering the account name and password, you you must also enter a unique security code that will be generated and sent automatically to the added phone number. The code can be used only once and will always be different. You can choose to receive the XNUMX-digit code via SMS or voice message.
For those who own an Android smartphone, iPhone or BlackBerry can install the Google Authenticator application that will automatically generate code 6 characters without having to be forced to wait sms or voice message containing the unique 6 figures. We do not recommend you to choose that single authentication code to be sent to voicemail!
Be very careful, however, because the Google Authenticator application must also be authenticated with the Google account for which you have activated the "Two-step verification" option. The Google Authenticator application is available in the Play Store (formerly Android Market) and cannot be used without first using a mobile phone number.
CAREFUL: Google Authenticator can not be used for authentication than logging into your Google accounts (Reader, YouTube, Picasa Web Albums, Maps) Browser
Another very important thing must be mentioned. When you enable "XNUMX-Step Verification," all apps that use a Google Account (for example: Google Plus for iPhone and Android, Play Store, Gmail for iOS, Schemer, Google Music, Reader, Docs, Picasa for Desktop, YouTube for Android) will no longer work if you already have them installed, until you re-authenticate them using the method presented in the tutorial.
The authentication of the applications is done by logging in to the Google account from a browser, it is necessary only once, generating a password that you do not have to remember. Only after you authenticate the application, you will be able to use it. No one can authenticate an application unless they have the phone number associated with your Google Account. Application authentication can be used only after activating "Two-step authentication".
If it is stolen Android phone or iPhone or laptop that you had installed Google applications, you immediately go to your account settings and delete all authentications applications and devices and thus who take possession of devices your lost or stolen, you will not be able to access your account or applications that require a Google account to use.
If for one reason or another you do not have a signal on your mobile phone (to receive the unique code via SMS) or a smartphone on which you have the Google Authenticator application installed to generate the authentication code required to log in to your account (when you have activated Two-step verification), you can download the "backup codes". You can print them or download them in text format. It is a document that contains 10 codes that can be used only once, each code can be used at a single login. If you run out of 10 codes, access your account settings and you can generate another 10 codes so that you can use them when you lose your mobile phone (which should normally be sms with the unique authentication code), when you have no signal, or when it will it is stolen. Do not waste the 10 codes unnecessarily and do not use them for authentication if you have access to your mobile phone and you can authenticate with the code that comes via sms! Do not disclose to anyone the 10 authentication codes in the text document. If you choose to generate another 10 new codes even though you have not exhausted all 10 codes from the old document, you must keep in mind that unused codes from the old document will no longer be valid. Only the 10 codes from the most recently generated document can be used. So, downloading several documents containing the 10 codes, on the Romanian principle "download them there to be" does not help at all.

    For me it is enough when I make an account to put a strong password for example "^ Gn! Tk6 & Mh #…. Here comes the name of the account …… A $ y5cRvo0y" (just like that I only have completely different characters) and I have to of course pay attention to keyloggers. But this is only in my case, which never happened to my account. As Adrian said in the tutorial, there are many cases in which a person can be found, so don't "jump" on me because I only expressed the way I log in to an account. Everyone does as they know how.
    PS: The thing deprindeţi characters entangled in a few days unless you are very hard-headed!

    Not valid
    On the second question, I did not understand your question…. You read the ENTIRE text above the tutorial. I don't think you understood the idea of ​​using backup codes. Why wouldn't the other 9 be valid if you only used 1? This is exactly what was mentioned in the text and in the tutorial. Each code can be used only once. Please next time, before you post a comment, do well and read the full text displayed above the tutorial and watch the head-to-tail tutorial.
    As for the two-step check on whether or not it is functional on a regular phone, you can find out for yourself. If it does not work you can deactivate it from another device….
