Written by Jeff Stone Jun 3, 2020 | CYBERSCOOP Google is making it easier to use physical security keys on iOS devices.

The company says that Apple product owners will now be able to use Titan Security Keys, which fend off phishing and other threats, on personal and professional Google accounts.

It’s the latest move from Google to expand protection after the Advanced Protection Program unit said in January that users could utilize iPhone or Android devices as a unique security key to access their accounts.

simplifies your security key experience on compatible iOS devices and allows you to use more types of security keys for your Google Account and the Advanced Protection Program,” the post said.

Google said users will be able to use Lightning security keys, such as the YubiKey 5Ci, and recommended that users install a Google Smart Lock app to handle the Bluetooth keys.
