Windows 7: Login to G-Mail using your Smartphone.

Login to G-Mail using your Smartphone.

Here is a nice tutorial on how to login to G-Mail using a QR Code from your smartphone.

Quote:
Google recently introduced a fun (and more secure) way to log into your Google account from a public terminal without entering your password into the PC, and instead using your smartphone and a QR code.

The method is similar to how Google sets up your handset for its two-step log-in process introduced in February 2011. Google's two-step authentication system requires you to enter your password as well as a unique short code generated by a trusted device (your smartphone) to access your account.

aha - the news posting rules have changed recently - doesn't have to be specifically windows 7 related anymore:

Quote:
2) The news article must be tech and/or Windows 7 related without any spam.
the rule did say 'windows 7 only' for a long time, but i noticed that the rule was being broken so many times (even by admin), so i asked for it to be changed.

Well I don't know how to properly format it like everyone else, and since I am like a lower ranked member or something I didn't think I would be allowed. A mod may remove it if necessary I think.

However I just read the rules and edited it in the correct format.

nothing wrong with your formatting - you just need to wrap in quote tags and provide a link to the original source, which you've done.

having a skilled badge is enough too.
