Google's Advanced Protection Program (APP) users faced targeted digital attack risks but now have access to passkeys, a cryptographic authentication system offering a higher security level than passwords. Passkeys, which can be stored locally and protected with biometrics or a pin, are less susceptible to phishing and do not require carrying an additional physical token. This shift enhances security for public figures and those involved in controversial work who are at high risk. Despite being a significant step forward in cybersecurity, there's no indication that user data has been compromised as a result of previous vulnerabilities.
