Admins and end users 

Why it’s important 

With context-aware access, you can set up different access levels based on a user’s identity and the context of the request (location, device security status, IP address). Expanding these policies to other Google Workspace entry points—such as the Google Drive for desktop app or using Gmail on a mobile browser—gives admins greater control over how, when, and where users can access Workspace resources.
