Bloomberg: Google Will Retool User Security in Wake of Political Hack

Bloomberg: Google Will Retool User Security in Wake of Political Hack. “The Alphabet Inc. company next month will begin offering a service called the Advanced Protection Program that places a collection of features onto accounts such as email, including a new block on third-party applications from accessing data. The program would effectively replace the need to use two-factor authentication to protect accounts with a pair of physical security keys. The company plans to market the product to corporate executives, politicians and others with heightened security concerns, these people said.”
