Set up 2 Step Security on your Google Account

What is 2 Step security?

This is a second form of security for when you log into a new browser or computer for the first time, Google will authenticate first with your password, then will ask you for a numerical code.

The code will automatically be texted to your phone.

Why set up 2 step security?

A second layer of security will assure you that even if someone gains access to your email password, they will still need your phone in order to breach your account.

Even though Google requires a cell phone to set this up, this number will ONLY be seen by you, no one in or outside The Leona Group will get your cell phone number unless you personally give it to them.

Below is a quick video that will take you through the steps for setting up 2 Step Security.

Google Extension Spotlight: goo.gl URL Shortener

Here is a great extension to add to your chrome browser from the Chrome Web store.  This magnificent tool adds an icon at the top of your browser that when clicked it will automatically present you with a shorten version of the site you are currently on.  Best of all it places it on your clip board for you so all you need to do is paste it in an email or wherever you want to send the new link to.

So instead of sending a link like this:  https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/googl-url-shortener/iblijlcdoidgdpfknkckljiocdbnlagk?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon

You can send this: goo.gl/DUrXQ

This extension can be installed from here: ​https://goo.gl/DUrXQ
