    And the ability to link with your existing accounts using Login with Apple ID
    With this release, we have rolled out the first phase of this new system. In the upcoming releases, we’ll be rolling out exciting new features like two-factor authentication, login via magic link and login via QR code! After the update, users who signed up before April 2020 and have not migrated to Easy Login system will not be able to use the app until they migrate. The application will itself prompt you if you need to migrate.
