Apple will allow iOS 16 and macOS Ventura users to bypass Captcha


We all know how annoying it is to have to go through certain Captchaidentity tests that allow a web page to know that we are not a robot, and that generally consists of recognizing a string of distorted letters and numbers, or alternatively, click on photos of traffic lights until there are no more.

This is something that Apple also bothers, which is why, as we can read on TechCrunch, we can completely skip these verification systems in both iOS 16 and macOS Ventura through a technology called Private Authentication Tokens, that allow to verify that a human is using a certain device.

These tokens are generated from user actions, so it is no use validating the device once and that’s it, but it is done continuously over time through an iCloud witness, also preventing web pages from having access to user data.

Apple has worked with companies like Cloudflare and Fastly to support these tokens, in addition to having been designed with the help of Google, Apple, Cloudflare and Fastlyso that despite the fact that there is currently no implementation in Android, it should be a universal solution that reaches everyone after a while.
