Regarding that Warning From Google.

Google didn't have my password and use it...I wanted to be clear on that.  it was someone they caught with my password.  So they warned me, for which I am forever grateful.  I would say the IP address did not match those I have here in my possession i.e.  my devices, so they challenged the user to provide proof...I have had that happen occasionally when I used an unfamiliar  to them, device.  If I can respond to the text they send, all is well.  That's the "second verification".  I think it's a great idea.  Glad I provided the number of my phone ---though it took awhile to get myself to do it.  There have never been unwanted texts or calls.  I do recommend doing it.  Otherwise your account could be and would be closed and you can't access it.

That's all really.  Wanted to mention it to make it more clear.  Happy Saturday!  I'm taking Katie's favorite Brother home to the Big City  after he gets up to his huge breakfast.  Bacon, eggs, 3,  toast (no biscuits today nor gravy) coffee and lots of Katie attention.  She sure loves him.

  1. Two-factor authentication can sometimes be annoying but what a great idea! I have it on Google as well as Paypal - just in case. Good thing you set up what has, nowadays, become vital protection.

  2. I agree, it might be a bit annoying to get that second request for verification but better to be safe than sorry.

    Have a great day!

  3. I'd rather have to verify then be hacked! Both my corporate credit card and my personal one are being replaced, due to some breach that neither card company will come clean about, so that's another way to keep my stuff safe...good!

  6. I should change my password, but it's such a weird one that the chances of anyone guessing it are pretty slim.
