Basically this will hopefully prevent hackers, ne'er-do-wellers and/or relatives from resetting your passwords.

Apple instructions are available at https://support.apple.com/kb/HT5570

Google instructions are available at http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/02/advanced-sign-in-security-for-your.html

There are also others available, like DropBox, AWS, etc and Life Hacker lists some others.....

While we are on about security, I use KeePass Password Safe, the free and open source password manager to create and store passwords. It will create a password like this:

TQErlxux5sKY66zaZCj9

(no, this is not one of mine.....I created it from a blank KeePass entry)

I then sync this via DropBox (the KeyPass datastore is encrypted, mine is AES 256) to my other computers and devices. Great stuff it is to.
