2-Step Google Verification: Requirement Coming September 15, 2014

RMU IT invites you to do the 2-Step with us!!

2-Step Verification adds an extra layer of security by requiring you to enter a code (similar to a PIN) after you enter your usual username and password to sign in. There are several ways that you can choose to receive this code (text message, free smart device app, voice call and/or printed back-up codes).  
For a brief explanation of Google's 2-Step Verification watch the video below:

What are the benefits of Google's 2-Step Verification?
  • Simplifies the 60-day password change process on all of your mobile devices by no longer needing to change the password on your mobile device after an Application Specific password is set-up.
  • Makes your Google Apps account stronger and protects you from the "bad guys".
