Google is tightening security measurespreservation of the user's confidential information. Google plans to prevent theft of personal information by providing more complex logins to accounts, introducing mandatory two-factor authentication from November 9, 2021.
The two-factor authentication method is based ondouble confirmation of the user's identity. In addition to the main account password, its owner will also have to enter a one-time password, which Google will send by e-mail (letter) or to the phone (SMS message), "tied" to this account.
After November 9th, all Google services, such as email, will be logged in using two-factor authentication, which will be forcedly activated.
Google representatives advise users alreadynow independently enable two-factor authentication to protect yourself from problems when switching to a new user verification system.
The tightening of the authentication process is carried out because the most common hacking of user accounts is carried out by stealing passwords.
