Hi
I d like to secure my btc account.
Saw this "google" feature on the site but unfortunately
there's no tutorial or explanations about how it works on bitcoin central.
Could someone pls explain how this works?
Do I need a google email adress for this feature?

Can someone pls explain how this authentification system is installed?
Google search only shows that it s an authentification system to access your google mailbox.
No info on how it relates to other sites like bitcoin-central etc

I dont use mtgox

You have to see if your Wallet provider supports Google Authenticator.  mtgox does.  From Google Play (App store) download/install Google Authenticator on your mobile. It works similar to a secureID which adds another layer of security, so after login to your mtgox account as an example, it asks for the code that is displayed on Google Authenticator, a code that changes every 30 or 60 seconds.
