Entering your Gmail password on a computer, mobile or tablet will

no longer be enough

to access your email or other Google services.

The company has announced in a statement that it will "soon" begin to "automatically implement two-step authentication for all users."

Two-step authentication is

an additional layer of security

that is intended to verify that whoever is entering a password is actually the owner of a Google account.

Its operation is relatively simple.

As the internet giant itself explains on its blog, users "have to confirm that they are really them with

a simple tap on a Google message sent to their mobile


For most users this is a useful measure since it represents an added difficulty in the face of an




(an acquaintance who has found out their password or a cybercriminal who has discovered it through a leak or massive hack )

can access

the victim's

Google account

and with it sensitive information such as emails, contact list, photographs, etc.

However, for some users this change

can be a small inconvenience

since, in most cases, they will need to carry their mobile phone with them to confirm their identity.

Something not always possible in situations of trouble or emergency where we have to connect from the computer or mobile of an acquaintance.

How to set up two-step authentication

For the vast majority of users, two-step authentication is

a good way to protect email and social media accounts,

and its activation process is simple and free.

If you want to

manually activate this function

, you must access your Gmail account by entering your name and username and password in the normal way.

Once the access has been achieved, you must click on the icon with 9 points that is in the upper right corner of your screen and a drop-down will open.

Within this drop-down menu, you must

select the account option

(which will normally be the first one to appear).

Once inside the "account" section,

you must select the "security" option

on the left side of your screen to then look for the "Sign in to Google" menu.

Within this menu,

the "two-step verification" option will appear,

which will allow us to configure this option in our Google account.

How to find out if my password has been leaked or hacked

The passwords of millions of users are posted on the Internet and are available to scammers and cybercriminals without their rightful owners knowing.

Fortunately, there is a simple way to

know if our password has been compromised

in some type of hack or leak.

This check is simple, free and

the process will not take more than 30 seconds


To do this, you must access the website haveibeenpwned.com.

Once inside, you will find a search bar in which it asks us to enter our mobile phone (which we must write in international format) or the email address

whose security we want to check


Next, we must

click on the "pwned?



and wait a few seconds for the results.

The website itself will check the email entered and the mobile phone with the millions of previously filtered accounts and will tell us if our email or phone has been compromised at any time.
