Gmail: Google will force you to use your cell phone to log into your account

Google knows that, in the wake of the pandemic, Gmail has become a fundamental tool for millions of people who use the email service to send or receive important information that is related to their work, study center, or financial institution. In this sense, the big G is constantly developing to add new functions that improve the security and privacy of the platform.

However, Google will implement a drastic change in Gmail from November 9, 2021. All users using the email service, whether on Android, iOS or the desktop version, will need a mobile phone to log in.

Already in May of this year, the big G had announced that soon the verification in two steps would be mandatory for everyone before the end of the year, although the specific date on which this change was going to be established in Gmail was not known. Google is already sending emails and messages about the implementation of the aforementioned measure since November 9.

The message that is reaching Gmail users is the following: “after entering the password, you will have to complete a second step on the mobile. Have your Smartphone close by when you go to log in. Two-step verification will be activated automatically from November 9. If you wish, you can now activate the feature”.

How to activate two-step verification?

The best way to protect your email is through two-step authentication or verification. To activate it follow these steps:

  • From your PC enter your Google account
  • In the navigation panel go to Security
  • In the part where it says “Sign in to Google”, select Two-Step Verification and Get Started
  • Then, you just have to follow the steps that they indicate.

Once you have activated the two-step verification tool, you will receive a code via SMS on your cell phone to log into your Gmail account.
