Mac Lock Screen 2FA prompt



I was wondering if there is any update on Mac lock screen authentication, discussed here.

We have been using Duo for Windows for a while. We have two Mac devices that also have Duo but we don’t like that it doesn’t ask for 2FA on lock screen. Users prefer to lock their devices over shutting them down, when stepping away or even at the end of the day.

This would be a useful feature and while we are on that topic, is there any update for supporting offline 2FA on Mac?


Currently, Apple does not allow for authentication from a screensaver and they say they have no plans to work on that any time soon. So, due to this limitation from macOS, it’s not something on our horizon in the immediate future.
