In May, Google announced plans to enable 2-Step Verification by default to provide more security for many accounts. It’s now October, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and Google has reiterated this plan.

In May, Google emphasized that using a mobile device to sign in gives people a safer and more reliable way to authenticate than using passwords alone.

As it is now reported in the official blog, by the end of 2021, Google is going to automatically enable 2-Step Verification for another 150 million accounts. In addition, Google will oblige 2 million YouTube creators to enable 2-Step Verification for their accounts.

Google currently automatically turns on 2-Step Verification for accounts that have a backup email address or phone number. Google representatives explained:

We understand that the current two-factor authentication methods are not suitable for all users, so our team is working on technologies so that logging into an account is not associated with the need to remember passwords, but the level of security remains the same. ”

It is also noted that with the help of Google notifications, the login process should be smooth and simple: just click on the notification on the phone to verify your identity.

5-second warning clips will remind you to “put the phone away” or “go to bed”.

Douyin, the Chinese app “twin” of TikTok, owned by the same ByteDance company, is introducing measures to combat its own algorithms, tuned to keep users’ attention as long as possible. Now those who “stick” in the application for too long will be revived by forced pauses between clips. Reported by the South China Morning Post.

On the social network, there are five-second pauses between videos that cannot be missed. During such pauses, users will be forced to watch videos reminding them of the need to “put the phone away”, “go to bed” or that “work tomorrow”. They will appear when the user spends too much time in the application.
