User reports on Reddit indicate the iCloud Keychain password manager in Apple’s iCloud for Windows app now offers support for two-factor authentication codes.
Two-factor authentication (2FA), acts as an additional layer of security for online accounts, as it requires a secondary code generated by a password manager when the account holder logs into their account.
While 2FA had previously required third-party authentication apps, Apple began supporting 2FA code generation codes in iCloud Keychain in macOS Monterey and iOS 15. Reddit users now say Apple has brought the passcode generation feature to iCloud for Windows.
Users who are running Windows can access their iCloud Keychain passwords and can add, edit, copy and paste, delete, and look up usernames or passwords.
iCloud password extensions for Microsoft Edge and Windows Chrome allow iCloud passwords to be autofilled on a Windows machine just like in Safari. iCloud for Windows Passwords is part of iCloud for Windows. The app is free and users can download it from the Microsoft Store.
