The internet giant wants to help its users protect their computers. That is why, through an official statement, Google announced that its Advanced Protection Program that was only available to protect the data of users in Gmail, Calendar, and Drive, will now be extended and will be compatible with the native applications of Mail, Calendar, and iOS Contacts.

Following this announcement, iOS users can enroll in the program without having to adjust the way they use Google services on their Apple devices. One of the main objectives of Google Advanced Protection is to protect users from accidentally sharing their confidential data with fraudulent apps or web services.
