Use an Android phone for 2-step verification on iOS devices

Quick launch summary

Earlier this year Google announced the ability to use your Android phone’s built-in security key for two-factor authentication in G Suite.

Now, you can use devices with Android 7.0+ (Nougat) to verify your sign-in to Google and Google Cloud services on Apple iPads and iPhones.

To learn more about using your Android phone’s built-in security key to verify sign-in on iOS devices, see Google’s Security Blog.
