Too many steps to use phone as second authentication factor

Pros: can use iPhone’s security chip as authentication hardware key
Cons: I have to open my gmail app, tap the yes button and then type in my iPhone lock key.
Why can’t they simply tap into iPhone’s Face ID to skip all these steps? I might as well type in my google password to login. Yes, it’s more secure. But it does not save me the trouble of having to type in password (in this case my iPhone lock key).

Blocked Security Feature

I’ve enabled this 2-step verification from Google after purchased Google one subscription to ensure it will be more secured. But, the smart lock has stopped working today to verify my login request from other device so I had to log off from this smart lock app since I cannot login to “Google Account” page to disable this feature.

Once I log off from this Smart Lock, then it doesn’t allow me to login again stating that you have enabled “Advanced Protection” turned on so you can’t sign in right now. Well, this is that stupid app suppose to protect my access if log off from this application how else am I suppose to login and authenticate.

It’s a classic dead lock error which google doesn’t fix it and they sent an email about someone from google support will contact in 3-5 business days.

This is atrocious! Why the heck we should purchase a “Google One” and lock our own accounts just because this app doesn’t work in iOS.

Great update - my iPhone is a security key

This is a great update. I like the new design and how the functionality of the app is clearer now.
The best thing about this is that now I can use my iPhone as a security key. This is a huge step forward to make it easier for people to protect their accounts. I’ll still keep my hardware keys as a backup.
