This is where you see it's a scam. GD never asks to copy and paste but to simply click on the link.
To check the real origin of the links inside your emails you can simply hover on them, the real web address will show.

I clicked only, not copy past. After, I immediately changed password.

Where were you redirected? Did they ask you some of your details? How did you understand it was a fake page?

HHHMMMM...as far as I remember GD NEVER asks to input details. Once you click on the link in the email ( the real one from GD ) the system automatically verifies your details and you are told the email is verified.
Never fill in any details!

Remember to use two-factor authentication at GoDaddy for an additional layer of protection. It is available worldwide now.

Simply put, your phone is needed to access your account as an extra layer of security.

2 factor authentication is the way to go. This sort of phishing won't work. If only godaddy makes it mandatory for everyone to enable the authentication.

I got this mail too but didn't bother with it as I had already updated my details couple of months ago.

As long as we are on the topic 'Godaddy Two-step verification", is it free to use the service? I mean isn't there any charges to use this services (outside USA that is)?

Cheers,

I think they realised that if they do not have it in place, people who take security seriously, will ditch them.
In March, a security blogger, accessed an account at GD without much effort by using certain tactics via telephone.

If you are looking for a seriously secure account for your domains- go to Name.com and check their settings out. No other registrar comes close.... you'll need to fiddle around and check out all the features you can use, but once you do, you'll see what I mean. ;)

Can 2-step at GoDaddy be used on multiple accounts (same phone number)? I have a personal account, my investor account, one for my wife, accounts for clients... but only one phone number.

Erm? You got a questionable email out of the blue, opened the link and you entered your username and password?
