    in about a year or so it will be recommended there be a three step authentication in order to stay secured. I hate to say this but I really do not see a need for two step for all accounts. the only account I have a two step is with my password manager lastpass. at this time, I think that is safe enough.

    just as a side note, if you do enable 2 step auth, and you are using any apps or programs to access your account. Like an email client on a PC or phone/tablet
    you will need to get a special APP password to continue to access the account.
