Google just revealed the Pixel 4 months earlier than expected

Google just revealed the Pixel 4 months earlier than expected In a shocking turn of events, Google shared the first image of its next smartphone on Wednesday, confirming many of the leaks that have been spreading around the internet over the last few weeks. If Google sticks to the same release schedule it had for the Pixel 3, then the Pixel 4 won’t officially launch until October, which makes this an incredibly early reveal. But there’s no denying that it will get people talking. In an era where everyone is prone to massive leaks, even the likes of Apple, Samsung, and Google, it’s interesting to see a company try to ride the wave rather than fight back.

'What is a Google verification code?': A guide to Google's verification codes, and when you'll need to use them A Google verification code provides added security for your Google accounts.

A Google verification code is a short numeric code that's sometimes sent to your phone or email address, which you use to complete a task like password recovery.

It's an added security step that ensures only you (or someone else who is authorised to access your Google account) gains entry.

How you could receive a Google verification code

There are several ways you might receive a verification code from Google:

  • If you use Google Authenticator for iPhone or Google Authenticator for Android, you can start that app and get an authentication code there. Google Authenticator is a good option for keeping your account secure because you can keep the app on your mobile devices, and the code changes continuously, so any particular code is only valid for about 30 seconds at a time.

  • Google can also text a verification code to your mobile phone.

In normal, day-to-day use of your Google account, you likely won't need to contend with a verification code.

Here are the most common situations in which you may be asked for a code:

  • Password reset. If you lose or forget your Google password and try to reset the password, you may need to enter a verification code before you can change the password.
  • Two-step authentication. Anytime you log out of your account and try log back in when you have two-step authentication enabled, you will receive a code from Google that you'll need to log in with.
  • Signing into a new computer or device. Google keeps track of what devices you regularly use. If you have two-step authentication enabled and try to log in from a new device, Google will require a verification code before you can log in.
  • You create a new Google account. Often, Google will send you a verification code to confirm you are not a robot if you create a new account.
