We use two-factor authenticator for everything, and you should too. The only problem with doing that is that you can get into some problems when doing this.

The main thing is that it takes a lot longer to log into things, however, Google has today revealed new plans to make logging in with 2-step verification easier.

Instead of entering a code each time that you wish to sign in from a different device, Google will now send you a notification on your authentication device, allowing you to authenticate the device, without having to type in a code.

This is similar to Duo Security’s service, which we find to be very useful when logging into our own services.

Google explained their own feature with the following:

We know that security is one of your top concerns as a Google Apps admin and that many of you require your employees to turn on 2-Step Verification (2SV) to keep their accounts safe. There are multiple ways your end users can approve sign-in requests via 2SV—by tapping a Security Key, by entering a verification code sent to their phone or, starting today, by approving a prompt like the one below that will pop up on their phone.

Google will launch this new feature on both their iOS and Android, however, you will also need the Google Search app on any iOS device to use it.
