Google is upgrading the security of your Google Account today. The company is announcing the ability to use your Android phone as a security key to your Google Account.
That means you will now be able to use your Android phone as an alternative to a physical security key and get added protection for your account.
The feature works for those with Google Cloud Accounts as well.
Google says the feature will require you to have an Android phone running Android 7.0 or newer, and a Bluetooth-enabled Chrome OS, macOS, or Windows 10 device. But more importantly, you will need to use the Google Chrome browser for the feature to work.
