If you are a Google user, you can make it much more difficult for an attacker to hijack your account by configuring and using 2-factor authentication now available (go here to learn more about this important feature). 2-factor authentication is a security validation process requiring you to present independent proof of identity before you can access an online resource--in this case, your GMail account. The idea is to better protect your account from intrusion by making the sign-in process in some way verifiably unique to your session. Read on to learn more about Google's very smart (providing an authenticator app for iOS) move to help users protect their accounts, and why Apple needs to quickly follow suit!
