Google Turns up notch on Security...

Google has recently begun rolling out much-improved and secure account security features firstly for its Google Apps Premiere, Education, and Government customers. The system features the standard "username and password" that is really the standard, but it also will be accompanied by a second form of verification. This more secure step will require a special code that can be obtained in one of three ways:

  1. A "Google Authenticator" app available for Android, iPhone, and Blackberry phones
  2. A SMS (text) message
  3. A automated phone call

This system is designed primarily to boost the interest of business, education, and government users who require the added security to do their daily business, which is why they will be seeing it first. Google does plan on rolling out the added security to all Google accounts within the next few months. Users will ultimately have the choice to have the code required upon every login, once per computer, or turn it off completely. Requiring it upon every login would ensure that any would-be hacker would need both your password and access to your phone. Download links for the Android app are past the break. Does this impress you or will you even use this? I know I will.
