Google 2 Step Verification
The goal of enabling your Google 2 step verification is to ensure that just because a hacker acquires your login information, it doesn’t mean that they can access your email, which improves your cyber safety.
How does it work? Most 2-step authentication services will send you a pin number as an SMS to your phone or via a phone call, and that pin number is like a second password. Afterward, you have to enter it to log into your account after entering your username and password. Also, the pin number changes every time you log in. Therefore, if a hacker wants to hack your email account, then he has to intercept that pin number or has to have physical access to your phone.
