Might be an idea to follow the example of Lastpass and make login only from your country an option as well.
Great message thanks Matt.
2:45 is the best THATS OK!
No, no way to get rid of it permanently. I click “no”, it asks again if I mean no, so I click again, then it disappears – but it comes back again eventually. On all of my Google accounts. Very frustrating.
Oh, sorry I misunderstood. I believe you do need a cell phone for two-step authentication, just not specifically a smartphone. Can’t you just turn it off and continue using your account normally?
You may have a different message. Mine keeps asking for a cell phone number, & only gives space to add a cell phone number – no other options available. It does not tell me I can secure my account in any other way. Continuing to demand a mobile # & not giving me other ways to do this is sleazy, IMO, & also makes it really annoying to log into Google. Hence, I don’t log in much.
You don’t need a smartphone for two-step authentication; the way it’s set up for me is every time I try to sign in on a new computer or every 30 days at home, it sends me a text with the pin I need to type in. The app isn’t necessary.
He mentions the paper codes you can print out and keep in your wallet. I think there are 10 single-use codes, and you can generate more once you’re signed in.
I don’t have a smartphone & I wish Google would stop wasting my time by making me click twice to say “no” when I log into my Google accounts
phew, i was worried for a minute that this video was going to say two-factor authentication wasnt any good
