Google launches Advanced Protection Program to guard against targeted attacks.

According to a Google blog post out earlier: "The Advanced Protection Program safeguards the personal Google Accounts of anyone at risk of targeted attacks - like journalists, activists, business leaders, and political campaign teams.

These Security Keys are the most secure form of 2-Step Verification. Even if you do fall for a phishing attack that discloses your username and password, an unauthorized user won't be able to access your account without one of your physical Security Keys."
