Your iPhone now serves as Google’s security key


You no longer need Android to use your phone as a Google security key. Google has updated Smart Lock for iOS so you can use the “integrated security key” of your device, that is, the Secure Enclave built into each iOS device with Touch ID or Face ID. From then on, you will only need your iPhone or iPad nearby (plus your usual password) for two-factor authentication when you sign in to Google on a desktop with Chrome. Use a Bluetooth connection to ensure it’s really you and not a distant intruder.
