PassKey is a Two Factor Authentication system that allows you to keep your Console account more secure.
PassKey is the current industry standard in security and you will likely already be using it for many of your day to day online interactions. Ever logged in to your online banking with FaceID or a Fingerprint? That's PassKey.
We are using PassKey to act as a second layer of Console account security, to replace Authy as a form of Two Factor Authentication (2FA).
Your default Console account settings, will have email as your form of 2FA. You log in, then wait for a code to be emailed to you so that you can verify the email and password you used.
Going forward, you can change this to PassKey and use a biometric to act as your second form of authentication.
As of the 29th of June 2023 we will no longer be supporting the use of Authy for 2FA and your account will be verified by an email code until you enable PassKey for your account.
