Phishing-resistant account sync across devices

As of July 5, 2023, this feature is available in the latest app version.

Okta FastPass users who want to authenticate with the same account on another device can now sync their devices with Bluetooth in a phishing-resistant way. By doing so, they can add the existing Okta Verify account directly to the other device without signing in to the End-User Dashboard. With this feature, users who lost their phone can recover their Okta Verify account by syncing a new device with an active enrollment. See Android documentation for end users.
