2step auth for your gmail accounts
June 8, 2011
Been seeing a lot of random spam from known people on gmail accounts recently. People whose accounts got phished or brute-force-cracked or what-not.
I’d like to suggest folks using gmail look HARD at using this:
it’s easy to setup and once you have it in place you’ve just made things much, much harder for folks to abuse. Not impossible, you’re not completely safe. But you are in a better position than you were before.
(caveat please don’t blame me b/c the guy in this video desperately needs to shave, it drove me nuts, too)
