    Google Account : 2 Step Verification

    I enabled 2 step verification for my google account....was it a good decision ?

    What is 2 step verification ?

    2-step verification adds an extra layer of security to your Google Account by requiring you to have access to your phone as well as your username and password when you sign in. This means that if someone steals or guesses your password, the potential hijacker still can't sign in to your account because they don't have your phone.

    I did the same but then my GMail Notifier didn't work, so I disabled the 2 step verification.

    Can an iPhone still access your GMail account, e.g. via the email application, if you have 2-step verification enabled?

    I have used it. It works well if you have a smartphone to run Google Authenticator. For devices and programs that can't use it, they give you individual passwords to use for each thing.
