People who live with controlling partners or those being stalked are at a higher risk of their accounts being hacked. The most common way to "hack" an account is simply by knowing the username and password and logging into it.

Two step verification means that in order to access your online account you need to your user name, password and a verification code that is sent to you via text.

Using 2-step verification is a really good safety measure for victims of stalking. It means you can secure your email account and your mobile which is very important. If you use Google other products such as storing photos or documents online those will be more secure as well.

Your online accounts and social media services that offer 2 Step Authentication will have help pages to show you how to do it. Just type authentication or password security into the help page search of the online or mobile service.
