Improve Security with Two-factor Authentication for Syncdocs

As Google expands into more and more of our lives it is worth thinking about what would happen if you lost access to your Google account.

Syncdocs provides extra security: in case your Google account is hacked, your files will not be accessible and can be protected by “military strength” AES encryption. However, it is better if you don’t lose you account to hackers in the first place.

A good way to add extra security is to enable Google two-factor authentication. This lets you use your cellphone or landline as a way of recovering your password. Your account is much safer and less likely to get hacked.

Matt Cutts provides more reasons to turn it on in his blog.

Syncdocs supports accounts with two-factor. Just click on “generate password” in the “application specific” password section. You can revoke access at any time without changing your password, too.
