Apple’s new feature should provide users with more security than Face ID or passcode lock.
Apple has consistently ensured that our phones and gadgets have appropriate security measures in place to protect your information.
For a while, all Apple users only had 4-digit passcodes.
It slowly evolved into more options, including fingerprint authentication, and by now most of us with iPhones are familiar with Face ID.
However, the recent update to iOS 16 includes a new security feature called “Passkey,” according to Fox News.
This is an encryption feature that replaces passwords to prevent hackers or unwanted parties from guessing passcode combinations and breaking into devices.
Passkey allows you to automatically unlock your device with just your face. All you have to do is look at your iPhone or other Apple device.
Not only that, Passkey can be transferred between banking, shopping, or any other application that requires authentication.
This may not sound too different from Face ID access in the past, but what’s interesting about Passkey is that you can transfer many passwords for other purposes.
