2 step verification for Google

If you haven’t activated 2-step verification for Google / Gmail already, it’s high time you did. 2-step verification essentially requires you to provide two proofs to show that you are actually you. After getting the password correct, you’ll get an SMS with a verification code which you have to enter to sign in. In case the phone is lost, no cellular coverage, etc you can add recovery options.

Why bother? Because you never know when your account’s gonna get compromised, and when you do, you’d wish you were dead.
