Hey Steve, love all of your videos. One question, I read on another site that some sites like Facebook, sell you two step verification phone numbers to marketers. Is this true? Have you ever heard this before?

I NEED to do nothing, especially not THIS
Larry McJunkin (1 month ago)
I've had this in place forever, but thanks for making this a tip as I'm sure many people haven't done this yet.

How can you put in a recovery phone when you don't own a cel?
johanponken (1 month ago)
You know, you could see it like this: buying a cheap cel (even a non-smart-phone, just need SMS), and getting a refill SIM-card (so, no monthly fee) would equal getting security. And you can use it not only for this, but everything!! And also not only for recovery purposes, but for another layer of security: "two-factor" secure login (1:38 "two-step verification"). And again: also this not only for Google, but for everything!!!

The screen I get when I go into my Google account does not look like yours - maybe because I am not in north America. But I found the recovery area after clicking around a bit... And everything was already there - I'm a good boy aren't I ;>} Thanks Steve
Tim Bushell (1 month ago)
Yer, yer, thank you, even Google asks me occassionally to ensure that these cross links are still valid - and yes I rechecked and told my SO for my cyber-death listing as you described back in the video on gathering that info to close or set to remember, etc. in social media as well as bank accounts, 1Pass and email.   But a useful and timely reminder, as things do change. nice to see the "one minute" to almost 2 rather than longer : )))))   Keep up the good work.
The title was a bit fishy, but worth watching!

Don’t have the recovery email account on the phone you use. If the thief gets hold of that account you could be stuffed!
Robin Perks (1 month ago)
I too have already done this, but thank you for the reminder. It's always good to periodically check account settings and recovery emails and phones. I learned the hard way when I was locked out of one of my accounts as it still had an old recovery email address and an old telephone number - damn. Love your videos Steve!
Bobby Phoenix (1 month ago)
I didn't read through all comments, so sorry if it was already mentioned, but you can also generate a set of recovery codes to use instead of, or in addition to, what you already said. That way if you don't have access to the recovery email or phone you can still recover your account with the codes you generated and saved somewhere.

great tip, I never mentioned it!

if its free ima have it steve love the google videos can we get one on google tasks please?
johanponken (1 month ago)
Maybe add: See what happens when bad guys get your account password and try to stop you from using these measures / change them. Well, you get a message and you can say "HELL no!", and just mosey on down to a recovery page at Google to fix things. Handholding for the cyber-worriers. (Not saying that I'm immune to it, no, it gets worse, to a point).
Daniel A (1 month ago)
What is your take on: Chrome now takes a single login to a particular Google service as carte blanche permission to log a user into other Google products, and starts sharing data like browsing history. Thanks.
Joe Pirola (1 month ago)
Am I the only one who is suspicious of this because we're just giving Google MORE personal info?
johanponken (1 month ago)
No you're not. But giving Google 2 more infos worries, while you're giving millions just by using it? Though you could set up a "fake" recovery mail account somewhere. Doesn't matter. They know what you had for breakfast anyway. User. (Fair disclosure: I battle them as best I can, but if I choose to use anything, I secure it.)

Karey Fyffe (1 month ago)
Did it! Thank you for strongly suggesting doing it now! 🤪
artzology (1 month ago)
Yes, I did this last month! Everything is good for me!
Ahmed Mahdi (1 month ago)
If you have two factor authentication codes then you don’t need recovery option ... any thing went wrong , And you forgot your password just confirm you the owner of the account by two factor authentication code that displayed on your phone ...

"Insurance Policy" - I Love It! I've taught two 45 minute YouTube shows (What Does This Button Do? 128 and 114) on this subject that few people will ever see. You sum it up in in 2 minutes. This is important! I will share.

Hi Steve, Thanks! Good advice. I checked out my Google account and was pleased to find it is current. Also pleased to see that the "security checkup" shows no issues found. (About "storming the castle"; after putting it off for so long I finally did it. Located the cooler w/ the ale; it is a bit early, so I am saving it for later!)
Rob Jorg (1 month ago)
account compromised, they change these settings. how is that going to help you?
johanponken (1 month ago)
Rob, I totally get your worry, just that you could have _asked_ – without stating. (That these settings would get so easily changed, which they can't be.)
dottotech (1 month ago)
Recovery links are sent to your phone, and Google has a history of the contact points to verify.
David Shelton (1 month ago)
Thanks Steve!

G.W. Willis-Brannigan (1 month ago)
where do I find your earlier video in two-step verification... I'm having a helluva time with this ridiculous new security requirement from Facebook and others 'cuz I don't have a phone (I don't need one, I've got my trusty iPad!) thanks

THanks, THis is the ESSENTIAL of all and MUST DO for every google /gmail user!!!
Mike Johnson (1 month ago)
done, thank you
Gary Teresi (1 month ago)
In order for me to add another gmail address I need as they say to prove it is my account. To do so they want to send me a code through a mobile phone which I do not have to receive a text. Gary

Good Advice! Only you (the individual) can prevent your account from getting hacked. This is not 100% accurate you won't get hacked, but you have taken steps to protect yourself.
Landon Praught (1 month ago)
Thanks Steve I have done this very helpful .

Thanks, Steve Dotto! ?Your tips are always so helpful. Will be sharing with my fellow pet sitters and an organizing group that I facilitate. Have fun storming the castle!

Done this a long time ago and it works. If anyone is tampering with your account, from anywhere in the world, Google will warn you. Thank you Steve for another great video.
Eric Prouzet (1 month ago)
Already in place... but I double checked... Regarding passwords and others, I prefer trusting alternate applications like Dashlane, which allows me to create and easily use strong complex passwords, and keep everything secure (info encrypted, they don't have my master password) without dealing with providers like Google etc. who could communicate these pieces of information if they are forced to.
