How to register for multi-factor authentication in Google Workspace

Google uses the term "2 Step Verification" but it means the same thing. Please follow the instructions below to register 2 Step Verification:

Step 1: Register a device

First, click here to check if you have a compatible device. If you see a device under "these devices can get prompts" select the device and follow the instructions. You should see something like this:

Example 2SV device prompt method

If you are able to setup a device as instructed, you're all done, there's no need to do step 2.

If you see no devices please continue to step 2 below.

Step 2: Register SMS & Google Authenticator

If you have no registered devices, click here to register your phone number for SMS or phone call prompts (either is fine but we prefer SMS).

Now, follow the instruction in this article to register the Google Authenticator app as an alternative method. Google Authenticator will provide a more reliable and secure method of authentication.
