Losing It All to an Online Fail
By Librarian by Day on August 12, 2012
A widely circulated horror story in Wired this week about losing everything to security flaws led Librarian By Day to tell her story about being locked out of Google by their security process. Blogger Bobbi Newman said,
As a frequent travel and often user of free wi-fi I activated Google two-step verification process a couple of years ago.
It was a little time intensive setting up (generating all those specific passwords for devices or services) but I felt totally worth it for the extra security it gave me. The app on my android phone was easy to use and since I am NEVER without my phone, always there when I needed it.
Then in January a series of events culminated in the “perfect storm” that led to a nightmare of trying to regain access to my Google account.
