This is only for accounts that haven’t already signed up for two-factor authentication. Google says that ‘appropriately configured’ accounts will be enrolled automatically. This means that accounts that have a phone number or recovery email attached will automatically be secured through 2-factor authentication.

It makes your account less secure
If you want to activate two-factor authentication on Google, you no longer have to wait for this change to start rolling out. Users can simply go to Google > Select Account > Security > Sign in to Google > 2-Step Verification. If you don’t want two-factor authentication and it’s turned on automatically for your Google Account, you can turn it off. However, Google warns against this, as it makes your account less secure.
