PSA: You Can Now Log In To iCloud Website With Face ID Or Touch ID

In the beta versions of iOS 13, iPadOS 13, and macOS Catalina, Apple is testing a new way to log in to the iCloud online website. When access beta.icloud.com using a device that runs iOS 13 or macOS Catalina, you can log in to iCloud.com using your Face ID or Touch ID instead of type your password and email address.

When you visit iCloud.com, a window pops up asking you to use the Face ID or Touch ID to log in to the Apple ID. In addition, if your device is on iOS 13 or macOS Catalina, you will automatically be redirected to beta.icloud.com when you visit iCloud.com. However, after logging in with Face ID or Touch ID, if two-factor authentication is turned on, you still need to enter the verification code for that.

Speaking of user login, Apple is currently developing "Sign In with Apple" that eliminates the hassle of signing in to apps and select websites and lets you sign in with only your Apple ID. It also avoids the transfer of information by providing developers with a unique, generated ID. Furthermore, users will get a unique, random email address each time when sign in to protect every user’s privacy and sensitive information.

Sign in with Apple works with Apple IDs that have Touch ID or Face ID authentication activated for an additional level of safety. It will be coming to all iOS 13 users this fall.
