How To Turn Your Android Into 2FA Security Keys

Welcome Reader. As we know it now, the Google Enterprise has expanded its two-factor authentication option for Android smart phones, making it even easier to make your account logins more secured.



The company has made known to the Cyber world that your Android device can now be used as 2FA key when logging into another smart phone device.

Requirements:

To activate your smartphone’s built-in 2FA Security key, you will need a handset running on Android 7.0 or above and a Bluetooth-enabled ChromeOS, macOS X, or Windows 10 computer with a Chrome browser.

STEPS:

  • Add your Google Account or Email to your Android phone by signing into your device.
  • Make sure you’ve enrolled in for the 2-step verification
  • On your computer, visit the 2SV settings and click “Add security key”.
  • Choose your Android phone from the list of available devices—and you’re done!
  • Once this is completed, users can authenticate login attempts by holding down the volume down button on their smartphone when prompted.

This will roll out in a few days for everyone in beta mode.
