All G Suite customers can now manage security keys for two-step verification
What’s new: We encourage all of our customers to use two-step verification for added protection when they log into their G Suite accounts. In particular, we recommend security keys, which are easy to use and better prevent some common attacks, like phishing.
Previously, we made it possible for admins in G Suite Enterprise domains to allow only security keys as their users’ two-step verification factor. In addition, we gave them (and G Suite Business admins) tools to manage the deployment of security keys and to view usage reports. Because we believe security keys can be pivotal in the effort to protect any organization, we’re now bringing these management capabilities to all G Suite editions.
Going forward, all G Suite admins will be able to do the following in the Admin console:
- Restrict users’ two-step verification method to security keys only.
- Add and revoke security keys for users.
- View reports on security key usage.
