Android phone’s built-in security key now generally available

Google Workspace news

Quick launch summary 

At Next 2019, we announced beta functionality to use an Android phone’s built-in security key for 2-step verification. We’re now making this generally available. All phones running Android 7.0+ (Nougat) have a built-in key that can be activated. This means your users can use existing phones for multi-factor authentication in G Suite to protect against phishing.

For more details, see our beta announcement or our Cloud Blog post.
