In this article, we are using Google Two Factor Authentication to configure my Google Apps for added security. Just in case you don't know, Google Apps is a vanity email version of Gmail.

How to add Two Factor Authentication for your email setting using iPhone:
- Your Gmail email address and password. This is your first authentication method.
