Google today announced that it has expanded support for its Advanced Protection Program to native Apple apps that include Apple Mail, Calendar, and Contacts, improving the feature for iOS users.

For those unfamiliar with the Advanced Protection Program, it's designed for high-profile Google product users who need maximum protection from hacking attempts. It's a feature aimed at journalists, activists, business leaders, and others who feel vulnerable to targeted security breaches.

The Advanced Protection Program offers Google's strongest security against phishing, accidental sharing, and fraudulent account access through the use of two physical Security Keys and restrictions on what apps and services can access Google content.

Prior to today, the Advanced Protection Program only allowed customers to use Google apps, but it is now expanding to encompass dedicated Apple apps so iOS users will not need to change their usage habits.

Apple's Mail, Calendar, and Contacts apps can now access Google's Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts data. Google users can learn more about the Advanced Protection Program and enable it through Google's Advanced Protection Program website.

Google “protecting” is like the IRS “collecting”
Agree ! Because of that I tried to turn off the "Access for less secure apps " but as soon as I tried to get my mail through Apple Mail I was "an unidentified " troublemaker .

Google just blocked someone from signing into your Google Account

I had to turn on Access for less secure apps again! Even if they perfectly know that was my computer and from my location ....

I guess it's not working yet or never if I don't use their apps: FORGET IT!

Its all well and good saying that but I don't see Apple doing their best work for Android either. Don't get me wrong here, I'd like to see both sides do their best for the products they deliver however these things go both ways.
