Who’s using 2FA? Sweet FA. Less than 1 in 10 Gmail users enable two-factor authentication

It has been nearly seven years since Google introducedtwo-factor authentication for Gmail accounts, but virtually no one is using it.

In a presentation at Usenix’s Enigma 2018 security conference in California, Google software engineer Grzegorz Milka today revealed that, right now, less than 10 per cent of active Google accounts use two-step authentication to lock down their services. He also said only about 12 per cent of Americans have a password manager to protect their accounts, according to a 2016 Pew study.
