Apple iOS 16 Lets Users See Their WiFi Password: Report

San Francisco: Tech giant Apple’s all-new operating system iOS 16 has introduced support for bypassing CAPTCHAs in supported apps and websites for users that can be found in the Settings app. When enabled, Apple says iCloud will automatically and privately verify your device and Apple ID account in the background, eliminating the need for apps and websites to present you with a CAPTCHA verification prompt, MacRumors. Apple iOS 16 Allows Transfer of eSIM Between iPhones via Bluetooth.

Apple recently shared a video with details about how the feature works, but simply put, Apple’s system verifies that the device and Apple ID account are in good standing and presents what is called a Private Access Token to the app or website.

This new system will offer a better user experience for tasks such as signing into or creating an account, with improved user privacy and accessibility compared to CAPTCHA, the report said.

In the first betas of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, Automatic Verification is enabled by default. Apple said the feature is also supported on macOS Ventura. All of the software updates are currently in beta and will be released later this year, the report said.

Cloudflare and Fastly have already announced support for Private Access Tokens, meaning that the ability to bypass CAPTCHAs could be coming to of apps and websites powered by those platforms, and the feature will roll out more widely over time.
