After you entered your username and password, have you ever encountered a window that asks you to tap on images of various objects or to decode squiggly text to prove you’re not a robot? Chances are you’ve done this image-tapping business so many times.
Apple has always been huge on user privacy, and the security features built in iOS 16 is no exception. In addition, Apple has built in a handy new feature that will make this nonsense a thing of a past. What Automatic Verification does is that iCloud will verify your device and Apple ID account in the background. It is all done automatically as well as privately. To enable this feature, go to Settings and navigate to Apple ID > Password & Security > Automatic Verification.
If you want to know all the technical details regarding this neat feature, Apple has shared a video that explains how it works. The bottom line is that Apple is making a more easy and secure user experience when it comes to logging in or signing up with Passkeys and Automatic Verification. This feature will also come to iPadOS 16 as well as macOS Ventura. All of them are in beta with an expected public release later this fall.
