iCloud keychain shows password warning and supports two-factor authentication code generation on iOS 14
According to details discovered by 9to5Mac in the leaked version of iOS 14 over the past few weeks, Apple is working on useful changes to iCloud Keychain.
For users unfamiliar with this feature, iCloud Keychain stores login names and passwords for websites and apps, and stores information along with information synced across personal iOS and Mac devices via iCloud. It’s a free and useful way to manage unique passwords for each service used.
In iOS 14, a warning message is displayed every time a password is reused in the iCloud keychain, allowing users to choose a different password for each login. Nowadays, all password leaks occur, so if you choose a different password for each site, the malicious object will not be able to access multiple sites with the same password when you get the leaked information.
Apple also seems to add a way to store a two-factor authentication password, which can cause the iCloud keychain to generate a two-factor authentication code so that a two-factor authentication app is not required. 1 Passwords and other password management apps already have these features, and if added by Apple, will make iCloud Keychain an attractive alternative to paid solutions.
Apple is working on several other features of iOS 14, and you can find details on what’s working in the iOS 14 roundup.
