Product overview

In order to protect users from sophisticated phishing attacks, Advanced Protection goes further than traditional 2-Step Verification. In addition to a password to sign in to your Google Account, it requires you to use either a physical security key like the YubiKey, the security key built into your Android 7.0+ phone, or your iPhone running iOS 10.0+ with the free Google Smart Lock app installed.

Additionally, Advanced Protection blocks any fraudulent access with extra verification during the account recovery process.
