More Secure is Google Account -Two Step Authentication.

Google has planned for the first time to introduce "A Two-Step Authentication/Verification" for logging into google account.It is really a very innovative way where maximum security can be ensured to the users.

This new feature will be first available to Google Apps Premiere, Education, and Government edition customers and then this will be brought to all the users who are not using Google applications....isn't it cool.. :)

As you can see the above screen shot,there are two verification mode.The first one is the login screen where the user has to enter his/her password then the next screen is another verification screen where the user has to enter a code generated from a mobile application etc.This feature will be first available to Google application loaded mobiles.If every thing goes fine then the user will be logged in.

How to get the Verification code?

The Verification code can be obtained by 3 ways

1.
From "Google Authenticator" application loaded in Android, the iPhone, and Blackberry etc.


2.From SMS message

3.Or through Voice call

Why this is more Secure?

Certainly this is more secure than any other login process.What happens in our normal online account is that we have to enter the username along with the password to gain access but here along with that there an extra step of entering a six digit code to gain access.So if anyone lose his/her password by phishing or certain scam still then the account is secure since the six digit code is needed  for logging in.

This new feature will be available to all the google account users in the next few months.... :)
