Google’s Advanced Protection Program Now Works With Native Apple Apps

by John_A

Google today announced that it has expanded support for its Advanced Protection Program to native Apple apps that include Apple Mail, Calendar, and Contacts, improving the feature for iOS users.

For those unfamiliar with the Advanced Protection Program, it’s designed for high-profile Google product users who need maximum protection from hacking attempts. It’s a feature aimed at journalists, activists, business leaders, and others who feel vulnerable to targeted security breaches.

The Advanced Protection Program offers Google’s strongest security against phishing, accidental sharing, and fraudulent account access through the use of two physical Security Keys and restrictions on what apps and services can access Google content.

Prior to today, the Advanced Protection Program only allowed customers to use Google apps, but it is now expanding to encompass dedicated Apple apps so iOS users will not need to change their usage habits.

Apple’s Mail, Calendar, and Contacts apps can now access Google’s Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts data. Google users can learn more about the Advanced Protection Program and enable it through Google’s Advanced Protection Program website.
