Add an extra layer of protection to your account with 2-Step Verification by Google, also known as Two-Factor Authentication.
Two-step verification uses both your password and an extra security code to verify your identity whenever you sign in to your account. If someone else tries to access your account, even if they can guess your password, they still won’t be able to get in without using two-step verification.
Two-step authentication is one of the best ways to prevent unauthorized access to your account. Follow the directions below to know how to do it.
How it works
Sign in to the store like you normally do by entering your username and password.
Then you’ll be asked to enter a verification code, which you’ll get from the Google Authenticator app.
Enter the code into the corresponding field.
Authorization is successful.
