Reasons that you should now use Google 2-step verification
Good afternoon OMG!Droid nation. My name is Matt Crane and this is my first post as a contributor with the site. I look forward to engaging this ever-growing community of readers and bringing you the latest news, occasional rumors and coolest technology.
Why you should use 2-step verification… Right now.
I read this article yesterday. My mouth literally hit the floor several times while I read about the tragedy that befell this poor man.
Mat Honan, of the website Wired, saw years of digital life destroyed in about one hour. It seems, which is little surprise to me, that there are inadequacies in the digital world that lead to the destruction of a person’s online identity and loss of irreplaceable pictures.
Before following the link to the original article, please take the time and setup your 2-step verification with Google. It only takes a few minutes, is a 7 step process and will help educate you on protecting your digital life from hackers .
It may seem inconvenient having to enter codes every 30 days or when on a different computer/device. The reward is more protection to your ever-growing dependency on your digital life.
I know that I will not be troubled by using this extra layer of protection. Make sure to take the time and read the full article despite it mainly being Apple and Amazon being the center of the black hole that Mat Honan fell into.
