The protections are a part of a new Advanced Protection Program, which provides what Google says are its strongest security features. Once users sign up for the program, their accounts’ security will be continuously updated by Google as it patches different vulnerabilities and beefs up its cybersecurity.

Users will also be required to use two-factor authentication to log into their accounts with a security key — usually a small USB drive or wireless device — to protect against phishing attempts.

Users will also not be able to use third-party applications to check their email, like Apple’s iOS mail application or Microsoft Outlook, and will not have access to their accounts if they forget their passwords unless they do a lengthy account recovery process.
