Hi Craig,

Yes, this is two-form verification. If your account/password has been
hacked, chances are the criminal doesn't also have your cell phone.

Google sends you a text message with a six-digit code that you then have to
type in.

For me, the process is mildly annoying, but I completely understand it.
We'll all probably be seeing this more often until people stop using
"password" to access sites, or some other fix comes to light.

Mike
