The Keychain password manager in iCloud can now generate two-factor authentication ciphers in the Windows app.
2FA, or two factor authentication, is an extra level of protection for securing online accounts. During login, a user may be prompted for a specific line of numbers and letters generated by the password manager. Apple has added 2FA code generation for iCloud Keychain on macOS Monterey and iOS 15 to eliminate the need to use a third-party platform, and it appears the Cupertino-based company is doing the same for its Windows utility.
The iCloud Keychain was launched on Windows last August, with users now able to access their keychain passwords via cross-device technology. In November, Apple added a “strong password” generator for people who wanted a more secure password for their online accounts.
iCloud Keychain users can use the platform to add, search, delete, and copy and paste usernames and passwords. It is available for free download from the Microsoft Store.
