In an effort to help organizations and end users boost their security level Google is expanding its two-step verification process for G-Suite users.

The changes include new two-step verification interfaces, different screens on different browsers and expanded Bluetooth security key support. The updated user interface will be on by default and started becoming available to users this week through a gradual rollout that could take up to 14 days to complete.

“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 said in a blog on the improvements.
