Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Gmail added a verification step when the user tries to do some things. For example, when you want to forward emails, add email recipient addresses, and edit email filters.
This strict step was taken by Google to help prevent criminals (hackers) from having access to a user’s Gmail account. Thus, hackers cannot forward or send certain emails to the user’s contact list.
According to Google’s blog post, when trying to change Gmail settings, verification is also required to prove the user’s identity.
If those requirements fail or are not completed, the user will get a security warning, quoted from theVergeThursday (24/8/2023).
Although this protection will make it more difficult for hackers to act, it also has the potential to overwhelm Gmail users with the series of verifications that must be carried out.
This additional protection will be available to all Google Workspace customers and people with personal Google accounts.
However, it is not yet clear when the feature being tested will be officially available. We’ll wait!
