Microsoft, the subject of more than a few vulnerability disclosures from Chocolate Factory researchers, alerted Google to the issue, which is down to a misconfiguration in the way the keys handle Bluetooth pairing protocols. The matter doesn't affect the device's primary goal - thwarting phishing attempts - but could allow an attacker within physical proximity when it is used to gain access to it or its paired device.
On Wednesday, Google announced on its security blog that it has found a bug in the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) version of its Titan Security Key that exposes users to a potential attack when pairing the device via Bluetooth. Just take extra precautions, such as using your security key away from other people and immediately unpairing it after you sign-in to your Google account. Indeed, Google says that these issues don't affect the primary goal of security keys - defending against remote attackers - and that they don't apply to USB or NFC keys.
Google's Titan Security Keys offer a convenient and secure method for securing devices that relies on two-factor authentication and some advanced Google-grown cryptography. The company warned that if you're using the security key's Bluetooth pairing, you should make sure you're in a private place where a potential attacker couldn't be within 30 feet. After that, they could attempt to change their device to appear as a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse and potentially take actions on your device. To determine if your key is affected, check the back of the key. If it's marked T1 or T2, Google will replace it for free.
"Google's offering includes a Bluetooth (BLE) capable key", YubiCo CEO Stina Ehrensvard wrote last July.
Google is offering free replacements of its Titan Security Keys, used for two-factor authentication, after learning the widgets' Bluetooth connections could be compromised by nearby hackers. Normally, the key should work like this: You hold it close to your PC or smartphone and the key will communicate over Bluetooth to unlock access to your online account. To get a replacement, you should head to google.com/replacemykey.

This makes it hard for hackers to target a user, since they won't be able to login without the physical key. And after logging into a Google Account, key holders are advised to unpair the key, repeating this process until a replacement model has been obtained. Even more risky is the vulnerability to accounts. If they are not already signed into their Google Account on the iOS device and are locked out, they can use the instructions available HERE to get back into their accounts.
"While Yubico previously initiated development of a [Bluetooth] security key and contributed to the [Bluetooth] U2F standards work, we decided not to launch the product as it does not meet our standards for security, usability and durability".
Users of iOS 12.3 "will not be able to use your affected key to sign into your Google Account, or any other account protected by the key, and you will need to order a replacement key".
