Google introduced the Advanced Protection Program in late 2017, to help high-risk users – journalists, human rights activists, IT admins, executives, etc. keep their Google accounts safe from targeted attacks.

APP is available to both consumer (Google Account) and enterprise users (G Suite).

It initially allowed users to make their accounts more secure by requiring them to have and use a physical security key to provide additional user verification during the login process.

In May 2019, Google made it possible to exchange the physical security key with one’s Android device. Now, finally, iPhone and iPad users can take advantage of that option, too.
