Withings ScanWatch launches with real, honest-to-goodness sleep apnea detection – By Jimmy Westenberg androidauthority.com

Withings, the ex-Nokia health and fitness company, has been making some of our favorite hybrid smartwatches as of late. The Withings Move and Move ECG both won awards from Android Authority for their understated design and powerful health features.

Enabling two-step authentication is one of the more essential steps you can take to secure your accounts. And the best way to do that is to skip SMS and go straight to a physical security key.

Have an iPhone? Use it to protect your Google Account with the Advanced Protection Program – By security.googleblog.com

Security keys use public-key cryptography to verify your identity and URL of the login page, so that an attacker can’t access your account even if they have your username or password.
