Google has a plan to make your account even more secure

The program would effectively replace the need to use two-factor authentication to protect accounts with a pair of physical security keys. This is a system created to fully replace two factor authentication and is seen as much more secure. It is specifically going to be marketed at those with security concerns, such as corporate executives and politicians. This comes in the wake of John Podesta, Hilary Clinton's 2016 campaign chairman, being hacked (phished) and having his Gmail-provided emails leaked during the last USA presidential campaign.

Said to improve on existing security measures, Google will be releasing a security USB for use with accounts.

According to Bloomberg, Google is developing a new system that deploys security keys physically tied to your device, rather than the current system which procedurally generates random codes every 30 seconds. As reported by Bloomberg, two sources familiar with the company's plan have confirmed that the Alphabet Inc company will be launching a new service called the Advanced Protection Program, next month. The service would also restrict the types of third-party apps and services that could connect to a user's Google account.
