Google knows that data security is of utmost importance – and the Internet search giant has just introduced new methods to further secure your activities online. Your Gmail account, photos, and private documents more or less tend to rely on the same password across multiple sites, so as the adage goes, the strongest chain is only as strong as the weakest link – so Google intends to have users take advantage of a new advanced opt-in security feature known as 2-step verification, making your Google Account significantly more secure since it will help verify that you’re the actual owner of the account. This rollout will happen in a staggered measure, so you might see a new link on your Account Settings page in due time.
