Google to turn on 2SV by default

EMD Tweeted this out earlier today. Google is going to turn on 2SV for 150 million people. I see this as a huge disaster that will inevitably lock out millions of folks. I have to support some aged relatives who have a tough enough time using a regular password, and navigating 2SV would be impossible for them. I use it when I can, but for many this will be a bridge too far for Google stuff. In my experience Google's security prompts on your phone fail frequently, and you have to revert to a backup method. Make sure you have those set up and the phone number and email up to date, and don't forget to save your backup codes!
