Google Offers New Security Features for High-Risk Users

From PC Mag: Google has launched a new security program that's designed to thwart even the most persistent hackers from accessing your account.

The only catch? The program wasn't developed for everyone in mind. Google's new Advanced Protection Program, announced on Tuesday, is specifically designed to protect "high-risk" users.

These users include campaign staffers working for an election, journalists uncovering a sensitive story, business leaders, and people in abusive relationships who are looking for safety.

"We took this unusual step because there is an overlooked minority of our users that are at particularly high risk of targeted online attacks," the company said in a blog post.

Anyone with a personal Google account can enroll into the Advanced Protection program, but it means trading in some convenience for the extra security.
