Keeping your Google Account Safe

Do you use Google for almost everything like me?  I'm sure you want to protect all of your data.  Google has a great way to do this called Two Step Verification.  Basically this is a way to make sure that even if someone figures out your password they can't get into your account unless they also have the authentication device (such as your phone).

Basically the way it works, is that the first time you log into a new device you'll need your password and a code that you can get via text or phone call.  It sounds like an extra step, but you only need to do it once per device and it's an added layer or protection for your account.
