Apple Watch Can Display Apple ID Verification Codes Starting in watchOS 6

Starting in watchOS 6 ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/roundup/watchos-6/), the Apple Watch ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/roundup/apple-watch/) has become a trusted device for Apple ID authentication purposes.


When you or someone else signs in to your Apple ID on a new device or browser, the Apple Watch will automatically alert you, complete with an approximate location of the person. If the sign-in attempt is allowed, a six-digit verification code will then appear to be entered on the new device or browser.



This functionality has been available on iPhones and iPads since iOS 9 ^(https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204974), and on Macs since OS X El Capitan, for Apple ID accounts with two-factor authentication enabled. Now, users simply have one more option in the Apple Watch.
