How to Turn on 2FA for Google

With 2-Step Verification (also known as two-factor authentication), you add an extra layer of security to your account. After you set it up, you’ll sign in to your account in two steps using:

  • Something you know (your password)

  • Something you have (like your phone or a security key dongle)

​Before you set up GoTrust ID as the security key, we recommend setting up text message (SMS) codes as a backup first.
