Orkut comes with email verification the strategy to enhance the security of the user accounts. It allows the users to login to their accounts via email verification. So this is kind of the two-step security confirmation working in Google. So the users are encouraged to have email verification as soon as possible and near future it seems to be a compulsory.

When the email verification is done the we can re-access to Orkut account even if we forget the password and it further ensures that our notifications won’t be sent to others. On the other hand if we have email verification for Orkut we will have Orkut chat via mobile like Facebook. It is not a difficult task to have email verification on Orkut, if you find it is difficult to manage the email verification the Orkut team will guide you how to have it. So it is going to be a pretty cool item as appears.

Since Orkut has the Google bar with it, when we are working in Orkut at the same time we can work with Google circles as well. So this leads us to save our time and make easier to manage the social network accounts at the same time.
