Google Rolls Out Optional 2-Step Authentication For All: Secure but Frustrating

Google just announced that it is rolling out its 2-step authentication program to all of its users over the next few days. Until now, this enhanced security feature was only available to Google Apps users. I’ve been using Google’s 2-step authentication process on a standard Google Account for the last few months already. While it does indeed represent a major step forward in ensuring the safety of your account, it can also be a bit of a hassle.
