Google Expands Two-Step Authentication to 40 Countries

Date: 2011-07-28 23:01:42

In an online security blog entry today, Google announced expansion of the two-step authentication program to more than 40 countries.

Google two-step verification is a form of multi-factor authentication. Multi-Factor Authentication not only requires a username and password, it also requires something you have or something you are. Googles offering uses voice or text phone messages. Impersonating a user without the device is not possible. Multi-factor devices include key chain tokens, voice or text phone messaging, USB devices, printed cipher grids, and biometric readers.
