> @daniel-nagy you might want to take a look at how WebAuthn will [evolve into passkeys](https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2022/10092/) until the end of the year. Especially on Apple and Android devices your use case should be pretty much covered. I suggest you base your regular login on passkeys, and only fall back to text messages on older devices or in case a user loses their passkey device **and** switches the platform, e.g. from iOS to Android.

Passkeys fall under the relax of point 3 that @emlun mentioned as they will be synced via iCloud, right?
Not sure if this scenario is covered: if I compromise someone's iCloud account and sign in on a new iOS device, wouldn't my faceID unlock passkeys?
