Okay, so you have bought a new phone and you don’t want prompts on the old device anymore.   You want it on the new phone.  Or perhaps you have another device and you prefer to set that one to get the prompts over the current one you have set.  This is how to do it.

On your new device, go to the App store

Just by doing this, registers your new device to your Google account.

Now, on a PC or mac, go to you Google account and log in.  

Click on your icon in the top right hand corner and select MANAGE ACCOUNT

Click on SECURITY then  middle of page – 2 STEP VERIFICATION – click on it

Enter your password again

Your new phone or device should appear under “Google Prompts (Default).

Whilst you’re on this page, check out your other SECURITY features.  Do they see right for you?

BY THE WAY, IF YOU EVER NEED TO TURN 2 STEP VERIFICATION OFF TEMPORARILY FOR WHATEVER REASON, THIS IS THE PAGE TO DO IT FROM.
