What is Google Two-Step Verification and how can I sign up?

Two-Step Verification is now mandatory for new Student Google@SAS accounts and many Alumni Google@SAS accounts, and will soon be required for all Alumni accounts.  You would have 30 days to enable Two-Step Verfication for your Googel@SAS account from the time of the account's creation before the policy is enforced and you are locked out of your account. If you are a Student or Alumni having trouble accessing your Google@SAS account go to to take steps to secure your account.

Two-Step Verification adds an extra step and thus provides an additional level of security for your account. When you log in with your password, Google sends you a numeric code that works for about a minute to grant access. The code appears by text message or a mobile app on your phone. Even if a hacker knows your password, they cannot gain access to your account unless they also have your phone.
