    It says, "When will I need this code? Occasionally, Google might ask you for this code to make sure that it's really you who's trying to sign in. If you sign in from a new location or device. If we suspect someone else might be trying to access your account". It is very important for us to write this down so that if we are ever asked for it, then we can enter it and prove our identity.
