With Apple announcing its support to have FIDO security key to protect Apple ID, Apple users are now able to use FEITIAN FIDO security keys to protect their iCloud account! Adding a second layer of security protects your most sensitive information, and significantly reduces the risk of  cyberattacks. 

FEITIAN FIDO security key series can all be used as an additional verification step of Apple ID’s two-factor authentication to enhance the security of your device Previously, attackers created phishing attacks that steal Apple ID credentials and one-time verification codes for two-factor authentication. Many of these attacks go unnoticed and unreported. But now, if the Apple ID is configured to use a security key, even if a phishing attack steals credentials, attackers cannot successfully log in to the Apple ID without accessing the hardware security key. 

To use FEITIAN security keys to protect Apple ID requires you to have: 

  • Apple requires each account to be set up with two FEITIAN FIDO security keys. 
  • OS 16.3, iPadOS 16.3, or macOS Ventura 13.2 or above version. 
  • Enable Two-factor authentication.

You can also discover other FEITIAN security keys, iePass FIDO K44 (with the support lightning and USB-C), ePass FIDO NFC K40 (with the support NFC and USB-C), as well as BioPass FIDO K49 which supports USB-C and a biometric sensor.
