As we know that in this technology world we are going ahead and ahead day by day finding new techniques and innovative ideas for giving us more and more possibilities of doing things in a better way. Sometimes these techs have a bad side to like hacking, phishing, Ransomware etc. So, today's topic is on one of our mostly daily used e-mail this is the most common thing we use professionally and non-professional in our daily life we use it in our home, Schools, Collages and Offices. Means we login everywhere and forget to logout sometimes as we are humans it is is in our nature to forget things sometimes as we are not programmed! ๐Ÿ˜‰




Here comes the issue that how we secure email….
Now I am going to introduce you guys two step verification with google authentication app. I was in love with this app in first sight it is amazing provides better internet security as our internet is all our online accounts out there.

How google authentication works?

For this first you need to turn on two step verification in google by going to My account Sign in and security → Password & sign-in method → two step verification and turn it on. Now once you are done with that choose the method “Google Authenticator App” the next step will show you a bar code now stop here.




Get the app from google play store (also available on IOS) download it run the bar code reader in the app from the menu and put it on your monitor/display and let app do the magic bravo! You successfully setup the two step verification.





Now whenever you login to your email account firstly you will be asked the password as usual then a authentication code. The code changes in every 1 sec in Google Authenticator App and its 100% offline no internet required for this (the barcode reading processes needs internet connection on your phone) get the code from app write it and you are done.




This google security checkup prevents Hackers to hack your email easily. Now guys you are secure! ๐Ÿ˜Š
