Google Smart Lock is a way to protect your iPhone/iPad from being locked while you’re near trusted devices. However, this feature can only be used if you download the Google Smart Lock App (App Store). After downloading the application, you must sign in to your Google account and create a new password. Google Smart Lock also requires Bluetooth Access, so ensure your phone’s unlocked. Once you have done this, you can start setting up the app.
Android smartphones now can use them for two-factor verification when logging into Google Services. In addition, iPhones now can be used for two-factor security.
The use of two-factor authentication (or two-step verification) is increasing. This is smart since a password is rarely enough to protect you. However, even though a code can sometimes be sent via SMS, it is still less secure than two-factor authentication using a physical key. Your iPhone can also be used to create an extra key if you log into your MacBook. This acts just like a physical key to unlock your computer.
