Google’s strongest security, do you need it?

Do you want the reassurance of knowing your Google account is properly secured? Have you had your Google account compromised before and never want to have to go through that mess again?

Previously we have written articles on important steps for all Google users (this means anyone that has a Gmail or GSuite account). Here are the most important ones:

If you don’t have 2FA (two factor authentication) enabled yet, you should probably do that first and then come back and read on. Sadly, only 10% of Google users have enabled 2FA  although it has been available for over 7 years and is dead simple to use. Don’t be in that 10%!

Google has recently released an even stronger form of authentication utilizing a physical device instead of a 2 factor code you receive via SMS or an app on your device. This may not be for everyone, but if you want the strongest protection for your Google account make sure you read all about it on their site here: Google Advanced Protection Program

So in review, if you don’t have 2FA enabled yet, you should that now. If you want even stronger protection, maybe this new Google device is for you.

Don’t wait until it’s too late before securing your online accounts.

Why you should listen to Google and get a green padlock

With the release of Google Chrome v62 in October 2017 all websites that have a “contact us” form will be marked by Google as Not Secure unless they are using SSL/https

Instead of a warning from Google, you want your visitors to see that your website and any information they provide you is secure.

You can read more about this change in the article Google have provided here: https://security.googleblog.com/2017/04/next-steps-toward-more-connection.html
