'IPhone' becomes physical key for two-factor authentication
Google released version 1.6 of its security app "Google Smart Lock" on January 13.
With this update, the two-factor authentication function using a smartphone, which was previously provided only on Android, will now be available on iPhone.
Unlock by tapping on “iPhone”
With Google Smart Lock, you can give your Google account two-factor physical authentication using your iPhone.
For example, if you try to log in to your Google account from a computer, you will be notified that "Please bring your" iPhone "with" Google Smart Lock "closer to your computer."
When you bring your iPhone closer to your computer, a confirmation message will be displayed. Tap "Yes" to complete the authentication.
In addition, since this physical two-step authentication uses Bluetooth communication, the PC must also support Bluetooth.
If you're using two-factor authentication but don't want to receive SMS or email, why not switch to Google Smart Lock?
