Improved security with 2-Step Verification and more authentication options to come.
New: 2-Step Verification on Sign In
2-Step verification adds an extra level of protection to your account. When you next sign in, you will need access to the email address you sign in with. We'll send an email to verify the person signing in is really you. You'll optionally be able to trust each device for 30 days so we won't keep asking you to verify every time.
More authentication options are coming
We know the current 30 minute session timeout could be handled better and while 2-Step verification is currently limited to your primary sign in email address we'll be adding the following authentication improvements, additional 2-Factor methods and Sign In options. These will be rolled out in order over the coming weeks.
