Add 2-Step Verification to your Google Account
Adding 2-step verification to your Google account will help to thwart hackers who might get a hold of your password. Basically, what it does is creates a second level of security for your Google account by requiring you to enter a verification code that is texted to you when you log into your Google account. You don't have to do this every time though, just once on your first login as long as you're on your laptop. So if you're not on a trusted computer, like in an Internet cafe on the French Riviera, you won't have to worry about someone stealing your password and getting into your Google account.

And here Dave Matthews doing the song Two Step from the album Crash. That's all I could think about while writing this.
