Google has unveiled a security key named ‘Advanced Protection’ for the users. The device working as a security key will prevent the hackers while trying to access any accounts including Gmail, Google Drive and YouTube. Even, the device will do the same thing in case of Fishing and Spam emails.
But, right now, only media personnel, politicians and social reformers can be able to use the device. Considering data security and maintaining transparency in the campaign, Google firstly prioritized the personnel engaged in these three professions.
This is the most secured version of 2-Step Verification, as Google claimed. The device will use Public Key and Digital Sign to ensure the identities of the account holders.
