Google Login is Easy Now : Google Two Step Verification Is Updated With Prompt Option , Makes Password Optional

     Hey Peps, Google two-step verification process is now Updated with Google Prompt option.Today letz's see how to enable the new Prompt option for two-step verification .

     Google last year launched two-step verification process to improve account security for Google users. The process is useful and secure, however, not the most convenient one. Now Google has update the feature by adding a prompt option, which makes the two-step verification easier to use.
       Unlike earlier where user had to check the OTP sent on their phone and then type it in the browser, the updated feature now will ask the user "Are you trying to sign-in?" along with details of the device that is trying to access the concerned account.

     The prompt will also show the device's location from where the account access request has been sent.
        The prompt will give the user two options- No, deny sign-in and Yes, allow sign-in. Google said that the option will start appearing in the My Account page from Monday. The earlier options like confirmation mail, confirmation SMS, and security key will still be there.

To enable this feature :
1. Go to Google’s My Account section 
2. Choose Google prompt under Sign-in & Security > Signing in to Google > 2-Step Verification.

  • Currently, you can't have Security Keys and Google prompt enabled at the same time.
  • A data connection is required to use Google prompt.
  • Android users will need updated Google Play Services to use Google prompt.
  • iOS users will need the Google Search app installed on their phone to use Google prompt.
