And this means that the Apple Watch with the new watchOS 6 will be the devices that allow two-factor authentication of other devices. Trusted devices to date are the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 9 or later version, a Mac with OS X El Capitan or later versions and with which you have already signed in using two-factor authentication.
Now the Apple Watch joins the list (when the official version is released) of the devices that we know belong to us and that we can use to verify our identity. To do this, we are shown an Apple verification code at the time of logging into a different device or browser.
It's about bringing two-factor authentication to the Apple Watch
To date, the Apple smart watch was left out of this function and now with the arrival of the first beta versions it has been verified that the watch will also be part of these devices with which we can Identify ourselves in a simple and safe way.
When we want to log in to a new device for the first time, we must provide two types of information (the password and the six-digit verification code that appears automatically) in your Trusted devices and now the Apple Watch will offer this possibility. Just when we enter the code is when we verify the identity and the session starts without problem.
This happens when we access our account for the first time on a new Apple device, they ask us to enter the password and the verification code that appears automatically in the device which in this case will be the Apple Watch. One more function that we will have available from the new version of watchOS 6.
