Use 2-step Verification to secure your email account

Click the "gear icon" in the top right corner of your webmail account and choose "All settings" from the dropdown menu. Select 2-Step Verification by clicking the dropdown menu next to the "Security" tab on the left. Click "Add verification option". Then click Google Authenticator or compatible to open a QR code. Depending on your device, you will need to download the respective Authenticator app (e.g Google authenticator app etc.). After downloading it, use your device to scan the QR code that is displayed in the setup window in your mailbox. You can manually enter the authentication code as an alternative if scanning the QR code is not available for some reason. Once you enter the code you will be logged in to your mailbox. The first time you setup 2-Step Verification you will be provided with a recovery code in case you lose your device. You can either print or download the recovery code and keep it in a safe place. If you cannot find your recovery code you'll need to contact customer support. Your webmail account is now ready to use 2-step Verification. Going forward, when you log into your webmail account after entering your username and password, you will be required to input an authentication code that you will receive from your authenticator app on your device.
