Advanced Protection requires the use of security keys to log in to your account, and will automatically block any login attempt without the security keys, even if someone has intercepted your password.
- Sharing your data only with trusted applications: Sometimes users allow unauthorized access to their Google data in malicious applications. “Invaders” may deceive users to grant such access in order to gain access to their data without having to log in to their account. Advanced protection automatically prevents this from happening by restricting access to Gmail and Drive files to known, trusted applications.
- Blocking fraudulent access to your account: Another common way hackers try to access your account is by acting to you and pretending to be locked out of your account. Additional steps have been added to avoid this during account recovery – including additional reviews and requests for more details about why you have lost access to your account. Because this may take extra time, Google wants to be sure you will never be locked out of your account. This is why Advanced Protection requires you to install a backup copy of Security Keys before you can sign up.
Anyone with a Gmail personal account can enroll in Advanced Protection, the new personalized program for those who need the most secure Google security.
