Every day, most, if not all, iOS and macOS users access their iCloud Keychain as their main password manager. As a result, Apple seems to be considering the possibility of implementing two-step authentication to Keychain, which was only in third-party apps and the web version of iCloud.
Apparently, reports from multiple outlets have suggested that the leaked version of iOS 14 has this feature, as well as a variety of new and exciting features. While this may be one of the features that do not get a lot of screen time during this year’s WWDC, it will be one that contributes to the efforts Apple has made in regards to privacy.
Adding more features like this will give Apple an edge in the “password-manager” market, which seems to be the Apple-like way of turning consumers into using all of their services. Even though it would make it more complicated for users to sign into different accounts or websites, their security is becoming more of a priority for Apple, which has become one of the main objectives of the Cupertino-based company.
What is your take on two-factor authentication? Do you think it’s the way to go? Or should Apple discard this concept? Tell us your opinion down below.
