Two-Factor Authentication

We already know that Nintendo has some of the most stable hardware out there, but thanks to the introduction of Two-Step Verification today, now your Nintendo Account can be super-secure, too.

When you opt-in you will be using Google's 2-Step Verification system, which of course makes everything as painless as possible. You'll simply need to use an app on your phone to scan a QR code. Job done!

Head over to to enable the extra layer of security on your Nintendo Account. You can also change your username / sign-in ID too, which is more than you can do on the PlayStation Network.

Let us know if you feel more secure with these two-steps with a comment below.
