New Settings for 2-Step Verification - 06/20/2016
2-Step verification provides an additional layer of security when protecting your account. Users may now choose from multiple verification options by visiting the "My Account" area and navigating to Sign-in & Security > Signing in to Google > 2-Step Verification. Options include entering a security key from the Google Authenticator App, receiving a verification code via text, or receiving a mobile popup.
This update addresses a minor Google Drive annoyance: when duplicating a file in Google Docs, you may now specify a location for the copy, rather than the copy automatically appearing in the location of the original.
