How secure is Google Cloud Platform?

That’s a great question and one that all website owners should ask. Nothing is more important to Google than your security. It’s the reason that both Gmail and G Suite are now the most popular services on Earth, with over a billion people using Google email each day.

In order to access your Google Cloud Console, you log into your Google account. To have a Google Account you must have either a Gmail or G Suite email address.

Should your Google account be compromised, a hacker would have access not only to your email but any of your Google Cloud Services as well – this includes your dedicated web server. It’s for that reason that you should always invoke 2-Step Verification for your Google Account – whether you use Google to host your website or not.

This 2-Step Verification requires that you have your cell phone and are able to receive text messages from Google before logging into your Google account.

Everyone knows your email address, that’s not a secret. But let’s assume someone got hold of your Google password. With 2-Step Verification, you must supply a random verification code which is texted to you after providing your Google password. This second step to the login process is why Google calls it “2-Step Verification”. Don’t worry, Google allows you to choose which computers or mobile devices are your “trusted devices” so you won’t be prompted for a verification code each time you log in.

So to sum it up, everything you do online is based on a password. Keep your password safe and protected and you won’t have any problems.
