Double Layer Security for Gmail is a feature that supports sending a verification message when you sign in to your phone, thereby making Gmail safer. To enable double layer security please follow the following procedure.
bao-mat-2-lop-gmail-09.jpg


Step1: Visit https://myaccount.google.com/security and sign in to your Gmail account .

Step 2: In the Password and login section you will see 2-Step Verification, click.

Step 3: Get started.

Step 4: The system will now require login again.

Step 5: Google will suggest support for phone verification, if you do not use Gmail on your phone, the system will ignore it and go to the verification request by phone number.

Enter the phone number you want to use to verify each time you sign in to Gmail and select Send.

Step 6: Google will send you a confirmation message, enter your verification code in the space provided.

Step 7: Select On to finish setting up 2 layer security for your Gmail.

So I have to guide you to turn on security for two layers Gmail.

Wish you success.

Wow, thanks for sharing this !
I use gmail for years and never knew about this one.
I only used my phone as a verification and nothing more.
Will use it to make my account more safer since I do not want to risk it being hacked or something.
Adding another layer would be great.
Thank you!

This is awesome, my friend.I've lost my gmail password so many times and I was always afraid I will lose it.Gmail is my best friend when it comes down to email providers.
Keeping it secure as much as you can is always the best thing.

I’m just wondering. What would happen if you lose the phone you’re using for authentication? Will it be easy to recover? I haven’t experienced it yet.

Thank you for sharing. I am doing this also not only on my gmail account but also on my yahoo mail. Since those email accounts contain special and important details of mine so double security really helps. It helps you also the moment you forgot your password just confirm it on the phone and it really helps.

You are highly welcome mate. It's always in one's best interest to have one's account well secured because a lot of hackers are trying to get into our account one way or another. My Gmail account have been hacked once which is why I sought for ways to put an end to this and prevent it from happening again.

Sorry about losing your password, it happens sometimes to everyone, there is no way to prevent that from happening but there is always a way around it which is why I shared this.

I would advise backing up all your passwords, or would help you not lose it too often.

You can link another Gmail account as another means of authentication should you lose the phone used for the initial task. I have done this as well.

I did all of that.I secured my gmail with double layer protection, used phone and another email.
I also saved passwords on my computer and piece of paper.
Thank you !

Yeah, having an account that is hacked sucks.
I had my facebook hacked few times, but I do not use it now.
Many spammers too.I will have to find a way to stop spammers.

You can use the email you set for using as a backup one for your email.
You just join with another device and recover it and you can change your password and add more security afterwards.

Thanks for sharing google!. I have followed all those steps to make sure my account from unauthorized use. That features of google is so powerful of protecting your account because if someone try to use account, the google will send you an alert on cellphone so you'll be alerted. Thank google for this!

Can you also share how to enable 2-factor authentication for a PayPal account? I can't seem to find updated guides about it. Thanks!
