Google Announces New 2-Step Verification Interface 

Google has recently announced a new 2-step verification interface for G Suite, and it’s believed that the same design could be expanded to other services later this year.

Google has recently announced a new 2-step verification interface for G Suite, and it’s believed that the same design could be expanded to other services later this year.

First and foremost, Google says that the 2-step verification interface has been refined to be easier to use, especially when customers use a Bluetooth or USB security key.

Furthermore, Google says it’s expanding Bluetooth security key support to other models, though no specifics in this regard are provided. Previously, Google only supported its very own Titan key for 2-step verification in G Suite. However, it’s worth knowing that these will need to be manually enabled by administrators with a flag on Linux.

The more interesting tidbit is that Google’s new approach allows for different screens on different browsers, as the company itself explains, especially because each web browser can come with a design of its own.

“You may see different flows on Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge, and other browsers. Previously the service provider (Google) was responsible for showing these dialogs. Now the web browser is responsible. As a result, the flow may be different on each browser,” Google explains.Rollout already under wayAccording to Google’s plans, the update user interface will be turned on by default for customers when it becomes available.

The schedule indicates that Rapid Release domains are getting the new 2-step verification interface in stages beginning with March 26, and the release should be finalized in approximately 14 days. The same schedule applies to Scheduled Release domains, Google says.

“We hope that these updates make 2-Step Verification easier to use. 2-Step Verification puts an extra barrier between your business and cybercriminals who want to access business data. Turning on 2-Step Verification is the single most important thing you can do to make your accounts more secure and protect your business,” Google says.

The company hasn’t shared any details as to a possible rollout for other services, but expect further news in this regard in the coming months.
