Google’s 2-step verification

Written on March 17, 2011 by CincauHangus

Trying it out now on a separate Google account.

You see, the scary thing is that IF I ever lose my phone, I won’t be able to login into my Google account. Of course there’s the backup methods to login – i.e. One-time use codes & SMS/Call codes, but still, what IF. What if the one-time use codes goes missing (say if it was in my wallet and it got stolen and the other copy at home was lost when it burnt down – touch woooood..) and phone is gone (robbers these days can’t settle for one item). Will I be able to recover it at all?

Lets hope it goes well.

If you’d like to try this out yourself, visit this link: Google Help on 2-step verification. Make sure you have your phone with you when you do this, any type of phone will do (smart phones gets like a RSA token app)

PS: touch wood touch wood.
