WebAuth on Apple Devices Update

These security keys are an option for two-factor authentication. In addition to one-time codes generated by an app like a password manager, a physical security means that someone has to plug the key into your device to access accounts that support this feature. Google also has a Smart Lock app to turn your iPhone into a security key.
