Gmail sign in 2-steps process includes logging in to the account with your login details and adding an extra code to make it difficult to access.  If you currently have an account, you can activate the 2- step verification process and can make your account secure. If you have opted for the 2-step verification, you will receive a code every time you use the computer to log in. The code will be sent by Google to your phone number provided by you, while activating the sign in 2-steps verification option. You will receive the code when you login and a code can be used only once for login. If you are using your personal computer, it is possible to register the computer when you are ‘signing in’ to the account. This will enable you to get access to the account without the code. However, the code will be sent to your mobile phone, and you will not be able to access the account from other devices using the same password and username. You will need to use the Google Authenticator option to access the code and use them on your mobile device.

The user can select the method to receive the sign code. You can select the text message option or the voice call option according to your preference or convenience.  You can also get backup codes which will enable you to use the service when your phone is not available for receiving the code.
