Google is making it easier to use security keys and its Advanced Protection Program to secure Google Accounts on iOS devices. Thanks to changes rolling out today, anyone with an Apple device (iOS 13.3 and above) will be able to use Google’s Titan Security Keys to secure both work and personal Google Accounts.

Because both USB-A and Bluetooth Titan keys NFC functionality, signing-in should be as easy as tapping your key to the back of your iPhone. You will also be able to use Lightning security keys, like the YubiKey 5Ci, to secure your Google Accounts — or any USB security key if you have an Apple Lighting to USB Camera Adapter. Google recommends installing its Smart Lock app to manage Bluetooth security keys and use your phone’s built-in key.

Google is also making it easier to use its Advanced Protection Program on iOS devices. The program is for all users at high-risk for hacking, but in particular, the company recommends that anyone working on a US political committee or campaign enroll in the program. Google is still providing free Titan Security Keys to political groups.
