Google has announced that its Advanced Protection Program for users that required stronger account security now supports native Apple applications on iOS.

Today we’re announcing that Advanced Protection now supports Apple’s native applications on iOS devices, including Apple Mail, Calendar, and Contacts. This allows iOS users to enroll in the program without having to adjust how they use Google services on their Apple devices. To protect you from accidentally sharing your most sensitive data with fraudulent apps or web services, Advanced Protection places automatic limits on which apps can gain access to your Google data. Before today, this meant that only Google applications were able to access your data if you were enrolled in the program.

The Advanced Protection Program is designed for journalists, activists, business leaders, political campaign teams, and others who may be targeted by hackers. It goes further than traditional 2-Step Verification, requiring you to use a physical Security Key to sign back into your account after you’ve logged out, or anytime you sign in on a new device. Advanced Protection also helps block fraudulent access to your account by adding extra steps to the account recovery process to prevent people from impersonating you and pretending they’ve been locked out of your account.

As of today, when you sign into a native iOS app with your Google account, you will get instructions on how to complete the process if you're enrolled in Advanced Protection.

Google says it plans to expand the number of trusted applications that can access data in the future. You can learn more or join the program at the link below.
