Have you ever looked at your message inbox and thought, ‘Why is it cluttered with so many two-factor authentication (2FA) codes?’
We’ve all been there, wrestling with the onslaught of 2FA codes that companies insist on sending via SMS or email. Sure, they’re a crucial part of our digital security, but let’s be honest, they can quickly turn our inboxes into a chaotic mess.
Apple’s riding to the rescue. With the upcoming iOS 17, it will introduce an auto-delete feature that magically detects and removes 2FA codes from your messages inbox.
This feature waits until your 2FA codes have served their purpose, then SHAZAM… away they go.
iOS 17 is still in beta at the time of writing. I recommend you wait for the general release. Once you’ve installed it:
1. Go to Settings > Passwords. Open the Settings app and tap Passwords.
2. Tap Password Options. Enter your passcode or unlock your phone using biometrics. Then tap Password Options.
3. Toggle on Clean Up Automatically.
And just like that, you’re on your way to a clutter-free inbox.
