Google confirms 150 million accounts will be automatically opted-in for additional password security measures. What will this mean for you?
This automatic enrollment of 150 million Google accounts is good news. Still, some people have emailed me with concerns that it could lead to them being effectively locked out of their accounts if they don’t have the right authenticator app or hardware key, for example. I took these concerns to the director of account security and safety at Google, Guemmy Kim, to discover how the 150 million accounts will be chosen and what the enrollment process will look like.
