Google has just released a significant security upgrade. The company is now offering multiple ways to approve sign-in requests via 2SV—by tapping a Security Key, by entering a verification code sent to your phone or, starting today, by approving a new prompt that will pop up on your phone.
You can now choose from any of these options in the Sign-in & Security > Signing in to Google > 2-Step Verification section of My Account at https://myaccount.google.com/.
Details may be found at http://googleappsupdates.blogspot.com/2016/06/new-settings-for-2-step-verification.html.
