Why you need it

It's easier than you think for someone to steal your password

Any of these common actions could put you at risk of having your password stolen:

  • Using the same password on more than one site

  • Downloading software from the Internet

  • Clicking on links in email messages

2-Step Verification can help keep bad people out, even if they have your password.

How it works

Signing in to your account will work a little differently

  1. You'll enter your password
    Whenever you sign in to Google, you'll enter your password as usual.

  2. You'll be asked for something else
    Then, a code will be sent to your phone via text, voice call, or our mobile app. Or, if you have a Security Key, you can insert it into your computer’s USB port.

How it protects you

An extra layer of security

Most people only have one layer – their password – to protect their account. With 2-Step Verification, if a bad person hacks through your password layer, they'll still need your phone or Security Key to get into your account.
