Thanks for providing this video, but I must say it is confusing. I stopped it after about 4:54 minutes because it just got so bogged down in minutia. At the beginning it sounded like we would have to enter this new 6-digit code every time we logged in. I knew that couldn't be true, but I'm thinking a lot of people might be misled.
Of course, your title is "... in DETAIL". I'm not sure that a video is the best way to present a complex technical subject in detail.
At least, I'd suggest you also offering the summary version. :-)
Anyway, this is the first I have heard about EN implementing two-step authentication (why do you call it "verification" instead of "authentication"?).
So, at this point I am unclear about when this will be available for me, is it required or just a choice, and how do I get it?
Go to Settings/Security on the web... It's alive and functioning!

Glad to have this additional layer of security. Having just set this up, it appears that the implementation is similar to Google's and that you don't need to enter the 6 digit code EVERY time you log in to the web app, contrary to what is said early in this video.. You can click to remember the code for 30 days from a particular browser. That's the best way to do it in my opinion as it balances security and convenience.
JM--this was just additional information for those who wish it in video form. We launched via the blog here yesterday: http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2013/05/30/evernotes-three-new-security-features/
Have a few posts up around here on it, and have updated our KB and Getting Started Guides with relevant information for set up. GSG is here: http://evernote.com/evernote/guide/web/?preview#8
Skellam--we definitely want to maintain that balance, and that's why significant work went into making sure things worked well across the ecosystem of apps as well, and for those who didnt wish to upgrade to a later version of the app, why we wanted to ensure that application passwords were available as well.

GB, in the future I'd recommend you posting links to the complete info like you just did. This would avoid a lot of confusion.
I'll aim to in the future. I'm trying to proliferate the support documentation where I comment. The problem with the evernote video (click the tag to see them all) links is that this is actually an RSS feed connected to our youtube account, set to send "from" my forum account. I still get notifications of posts and replies, so it's not like this is 100% robotic, but these videos are automatically getting submitted.
I suppose I could set up another (say, Evernote Video) avatar to do this, which may alleviate confusion, but it's also nice being able to immediately engage on a topic as myself
