2FA is shorthand for Two-Factor Authentication. It’s an extra security feature to protect an online account, and is offered by many companies for their users. But soon, Google is making this feature mandatory for its Google and Gmail accounts. If you aren’t already using 2FA to protect your account, you may soon get an email like this from Google:

Google 2FA Email Notice

This requirement has been in the works for a while now, and Google is just now rolling it out. I want to assure you that the above email is legitimate, if you receive it. You can click the Turn On Now button and fulfill the 2FA setup, or you can visit this link to learn more and get started.

Not sure if you have 2FA turned on yet? Go to the Google Security Checkup page to determine this.

Reach out to me if you need help with this process!
