Passwordless by default: Passkeys are a simpler and more secure way to sign into sites online and can be used with your Google Accounts. To make your transition to passwordless even easier, we’re offering them as the default option across personal Google Accounts.

Securing Pixel with Google Tensor G3: Tensor G3 keeps your phone private and secure by working with the Titan M2 security chip, making Pixel even more resilient to cyber-attacks. Using advanced machine learning models, Face Unlock on Pixel 8 also now uses the strongest Android biometric class where applicable and can be used for more secure banking and payment apps like Google Wallet.

Making email safer for everyone: Gmail’s AI-powered defences block more than 99.9% of spam, phishing and malware from reaching your mailbox. That’s the same as dealing with 15 billion emails every day. Plus, Gmail recently announced new requirements for large senders to make email safer and more user-friendly for everyone.

Dark web report: Google also offers a dark web report to help you see if your Gmail address has been exposed on the dark web, and for guidance on how you can protect yourself online. To make the report more accessible it is bringing it to the account menu in the Google App. Just sign into the Google App and tap your profile picture to open the menu. The Dark web report can be found in the account menu on Android and will be coming soon to iOS devices.

Use the Google App as the credential provider for your iOS device: Google Password Manager is built into the Google App and you can already use it to securely save your passwords and sign in faster. Now, you can set it as your Autofill provider so that the Google App can help you quickly and securely fill your passwords into any app or website on your iOS device.
