Protected if your mailbox?

In this post, the head of the Google team to combat web spam Matt Cutts (Matt Cutts) explain why everyone should connect the two-level authorization in Google.

I would recommend to include a two-level authentication to secure your Gmail and access to other services Google.

Two levels – this is something you know (password), plus what you own (phone). Here is a simple video of how it works (there are Russian subtitles – approx. Farid Karimov)

Matt further debunks several popular myths:

Myth number 1: What if my phone loses the signal, or I’ll be in another country?

Reality: You can install the app Google Authenticator (which is also available in the App Store ), so that the cellular signal you do not need.

Myth number 2: OK, but what if my phone runs out or is stolen?

Reality: You can print up to 10 single-use codes that allow you to go to your mail from anywhere. Keep this piece of paper in his wallet.

Myth number 3: I have to enter the code each time you log into the account?

Reality: Not necessarily. You can ask Google to remember your computer for 30 days, and sometimes longer .

Myth number 4: I heard that the two-tier authentication does not work if I use e-mail program.

Reality: In this case, you can create a special password just for the program, which you can cancel at any time.

Myth number 5: But can I believe most Google Authenticator?

Reality: Google Authenticator – a free open source product. Everyone can see how it works. In addition, you can use the Google Authenticator opportunities for authorization in LastPass, WordPress, Dropbox, Amazon Web Services, Drupal, DreamHost, GitHub, Evernote and other services and programs.

Please do not leave a two-tier connection authorization. It is not so difficult, and security of your account will grow significantly. Connect the two-tier authorization right now!
