Technology News: To boost the privacy of users, Google will soon start to roll out a two-step verification feature for user trying to login to their existing Google accounts.
In its website The Keyword, a new blogpost “A simpler and safer future- without passwords” made on Thursday on account of World Password Day read that its users will be asked to do a 2SV using a Google prompt on their mobile phone when they sign.
Google will start sending prompts to all its two-billion users worldwide. Having a 2SV process means that no one access your accounts without first having physical access to the device on which it is logged in. An OTP will be sent to your mobile phone via your phone number or email for second verification.
Google has also built security keys into Android devices so people can now use phones for their secondary form of authentication. Since most of the users tend to use same passwords for all their Google-linked/backed accounts, it now wants to completely eliminate the use of passwords and its newly launched features like Google Passwords manager, Password import and Security check up will help reduce use of the same credentials across different digital accounts.
