Google has long been promoting the two-step verification system in its services by encouraging users to better secure their account. The company decided to slightly redesign the entire interface that has appeared so far even if you logged in to Gmail. The new solution is to be not only streamlined, but most of all easier to use – especially when users use a special Bluetooth or USB security key.
The American giant also announced that it is going to extend the availability of Bluetooth security key support to other devices, but this topic does not provide any more details. Previously, Google only supported its own Titan key for 2-step verification in Google Apps – on Linux, the case could sometimes be a bit harder.
At this moment, the two-step verification interface has not yet been unified – that’s what Google is all about. It may turn out that people using Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Microsoft Edge will see a different login box. With time, however, the case is to be brought to a uniform, default appearance in all applications and on each of the available platforms.
The new 2-step verification interface will start to reach everyone in the coming days – its implementation started on March 26 and will probably last about two weeks. The American manufacturer from Mountain View plans for such a quick adoption of changes. At the same time, Google hopes that the new updates will make two-step verification not only easier to use, but also encourage more individual users and businesses to activate it. The spokespersons point out that the activity is currently one of the most important things to do in the network to protect your company, accounts and sensitive data.
