Easily register your YubiKey with Advanced Protection. Go to Account settings, select Sign in & Security, select 2-Step Verification, and Add Security Key.
By requiring the physical key to log in, you protect your account from remote and unauthorized access.

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.
