Two-Step Verification was up until recently only available to Evernote Premium customers. Regular users of the service could not enable the extra security for their accounts, but that changed yesterday with the announcement that all users of the service can now set up Two-Step Verification on the site.
Let me explain what it does, before I go over the set up process. Two-Step verification is a popular technology to add a second layer of protection to a user’s login process on a website or service.
Instead of just having to enter the username and password to get in, a temporary code has to be entered in the second sign in step (hence the two-factor) to complete it and log on.
