When logging into your account from an unrecognized device you will be prompted to verify your identity, usually with a verification code.

Why enable 2 factor authentication? It keeps anyone but you OUT of your account. Even if someone compromises your password they will be unable to access your account without the verification code. has instructions on enabling 2 factor authentication for services likeGoogle, Facebook, Twitter, and more!
