Enable Google 2-Step Verification

Google offers an additional layer of login protection called 2-step verification. When 2-step verification is activated, you’ll log in with your usual credentials, but will also be prompted to enter a verification code that is delivered to your phone via text message.

  1. Activate 2-step verification using the following link: ACTIVATE
  2. Consult Google's directions on setting up trusted devices with 2-step verification.

For those using Outlook or other 3rd party email clients that do not support OAUTH authentication, using 2-step verification requires a special sign-in using App Passwords.  

I have a new phone and need 2-step verification codes sent to it.
