‘Only 10 Percent Of Google Accounts Are Using 2-Step Verification,’ Reveals Recent Reports
Though the tech giant Google has been providing secured usage of its services, recent statistics revealed that only 10 Percent of Gmails are using the 2-Step Verification.
Recently, Google software engineer Grzegorz Milka revealed that Google’s email service had two-factor authentication, where this is only being employed by 10 percent of its users. A new report stated that less than 10 percent of Google email users are using the ‘2-step verification’.
In the 2-step verification process, Google asks a password in the first step and sends a verification code to the user’s phone or a security key to login.
