Android's Security Key Now Verifies Sign-Ins on iOS Devices

Rewards on the rewards page Google expands Android's built-in security key to iOS devices

Last month, Google announced a new way to protect Google accounts with a security key built into their Android phones.

"Until now, there were limited options for using FIDO2 security keys on iOS devices".

The update means that you can now use Android (7.0 and above) devices to verify your sign-ins on iPhones and iPads.

Authorities said they located the 15-year-old mother near the scene and transported her to a hospital for treatment. Cooper was unable to get into the dumpster so he called on-site manager John Pedebone.

You'll need to make sure both your devices have their Bluetooth connection enabled, download the Google Smart Lock app on your iPhone or iPad, use that to enter your Google username and password, then simply hold the volume down button on your Android handset after receiving a notification to complete the process. However, the process works a little different for the 2-step process on iOS devices. On desktops and laptops, the Chrome browser is used as the middleman to communicate with the Android phone's built-in security key over Bluetooth using FIDO's Client to Authenticator Protocol (CTAP2). "Now, you can get the strongest 2SV method with the convenience of an Android phone that's always in your pocket at no additional cost", says Google.

Because there's no actual Chrome browser on iOS (Chrome for iOS is actually running on WebKit - aka a customized Safari), for iOS devices, the Chrome browser will be replaced by Google's Smart Lock app, which users will have to install on their iOS devices. Besides, what Google is trying to do here is improve iOS security with the help of Android phones, which sounds like a brilliant plan when you think about it.

Select "Add Security Key" and choose your Android smartphone from the list of devices. This ensures that the Android smartphone can detect and authorize any login attempts for Google accounts triggered from your iPhone.
