Google Improves 2-Step Verification to Ensure Internet Users’ Safety

Google announced the expansion of its two-step verification (2SV) procedure auto enrolments for log-ins on Tuesday in order to improve account security and offer a safer Internet experience for its customers.
This is in honor of World’s Safer Internet Day, which aims to keep internet users secure.
According to the Nigerian News Agency (NAN), February 8 is International Safer Internet Day.
It’s a day dedicated to encouraging people to use online technology responsibly.
Dawn Dimowo, Government Affairs, Public Policy Manager, Google Nigeria, said in a statement that the two step verification initiative saw a 50 per cent drop in account breach.
Dimowo said the breaches dropped for 150 million Gmail and two million YouTube creator accounts.
She said that the 2SV introduces use of mobile phones to confirm a users’ identity every time one accesses their Google Account from a different device.
According to her, aligning with this year’s global Safer Internet Day theme, “Together for a better Internet”, Google is actively working on new technologies.
