Account security on any website is always needed to some extent, but it’s especially critical for finance platforms. Even the strongest password can be broken and used by malicious actors to access services illegally and take advantage of a person’s personal data.
Top IT services strive to protect not only their own clients but all web users from malicious actors, Google being one of them. Google Authenticator is one of the most popular security avenues for verifying user logins to their social media accounts, e-wallets, online games, and other services that hold sensitive data.
