Two-Step Verification in Google App is a great feature for users to keep their accounts secure from unauthorized use. The technology company has enabled another way to better secure your account- now, you can unlock your account by tapping a Security Key.
Currently, Google allows users to enable a 2-step verification process through their mobile – a six-digit code is sent to their phone to login into the account. Alongside this feature, now you can simply verify log-in attempts by unlocking a registered phone via security keys. Starting from today, you’ll see a Google prompt will pop up on your phone. If you select “yes” on your phone, the log-in will be completed on the computer you tried to log in to.
The new verification feature is a part of Google’s providing another layer of security while at the same time removing the extra step. At this moment, users won’t be able to have Security Keys and Google prompt enabled simultaneously, and a data connection is required if you are using Google prompt.
