Google Extends its Advanced Protection Program To Native iOS Apps

Earlier, only Google applications were able to access Google data through this program, but moving forward, Apple's native apps will be able to access users' Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts. This includes politicians, business leaders, journalists, and so on.

"Our goal is to make sure that any user-facing an increased risk of online attacks enrolls in the Advanced Protection Program", Dario Salice, Google's product manager for this services, writes.

Google has announced that it's expanding its Advanced Protection Program to cover Apple's native applications on iOS devices.

The Chinese officials would like the USA to listen to ZTE's appeal over the ban, sources told Reuters . According to him, these points were sold 2400 phones Huawei and ZTE previous year .

The program is meant to provide users with Google's robust security against phishing attacks by requiring the use of a physical security key as part of the process of logging back in to a user's account after signing out or once a user signs in using a new device.

To protect users from accidentally sharing sensitive data with fraudulent apps or web services, Google's Advanced Protection Program limits users to using only a very small list of specifically whitelisted apps to access Google's services such as Gmail and Google Calendar. In a previous note to clients written a year ago, Toni Sacconaghi of Bernstein said that iOS devices account for half of Google's mobile search revenue. When you sign into iOS native applications with your Google account, you will get instructions on how to complete the sign-in process if you're enrolled in Advanced Protection. If you're interested in learning more about the program, you can head on over to Google's website for the details. It also offers an additional layer of security as part of the recovery step in order to block illegitimate access to a user's account.
