Apple watch + biometric requirement


Pretty sure I know the answer to this, but just to verify, if I have have a policy that requires additional biometric authentication and I want to use an Apple watch to authenticate, what happens when the notification shows up on the watch? I would imagine I could still approve it on the watch, but then I’d have to get my phone out for the biometric step?


Hi Texx,
You are correct: You would still need to complete authentication on your device if a Biometric policy was in place.


Thanks. Maybe one day the watch will support some form of biometric auth. I’d buy one in a heartbeat (no pun intended) just for Duo!


Sure thing! As a Watch holdout myself, I’d likely be in the same boat!
