Turn-off Google 2-Step Verification

Few days back we wrote an article on ‘how to use 2-step verification for Google account’ to make it hack proof. 2-Step verification adds a hard to breach extra layer of security. But, sometimes it feels annoying to access Google account and its services from non-browser desktop applications like Microsoft Outlook, mobile phone apps, Google Chrome sign-in and others. You need to provide application-specific password to access Google services on these devices.

So, if you feel that you have nothing important to be stole on your Google account and want to revoke 2-step verification process, then here is a tutorial to follow.

Login to your Google account and open 2-Step verification page. You may be asked to re-enter password , just do that.

Now click ‘Turn off 2-step verification’. A pop-up window will appear to ask you that are you sure to turn off 2-step verification. Click OK and you’re done.

Very easy process, but don’t forget to revoke access for authorizing application. Destroy all application specific password’s you have created to access non-browser apps.
