The first step you need to take is to open the browser you usually use to surf the Internet, connect to google.it or google.com, click on your photo located at the top right and press the button Manage your Google Account present in the box that opens.

Then click on the button Change the password And that's it.
The keyword must be at least 8 characters long. Preferably it should contain at least one uppercase letter, one number and one special character (e.g. an exclamation point or parenthesis). If you want advice on how to make a secure password, please consult the tutorial I dedicated to the topic.
Do you want to make your account even more secure? Then activate the two-step verification. Two-step verification is a technology that allows you to associate a temporary security code with your account password that is delivered via SMS (to be entered together with the password each time you access the account from a new browser or a new device) .

Now, type the code that you received via SMS or via a phone call to the number provided previously, click the buttons NEXT e Activate and follow the instructions that are shown on the screen to complete the configuration of the function. Once complete, you will receive an email confirming that XNUMX-Step Verification has been activated.
Note: Some apps may not support Google's XNUMX-Step Verification feature, so you'll need to create some password via le app to be used only in the latter. More information on the subject can be found in my tutorial on how to authenticate Google accounts.
