Thanks, Mike.

By the way, I see nothing wrong with using the word "password" as my universal password for all my essential logins. Kidding, kidding....

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.

Whirlers,

I just got offered a vanity URL for Google Plus. I have to plug in
my mobile number to get the URL.

Have any of you folks done this?

What do you suggest?
