Can an Android device be used for 2FA for an Apple/iCloud account? Google didn't return anything useful.

(Couldn't find any appropriate tags to use)

  • Please define the concrete 2FA type. Any (smart)phone can be used for 2FA where the user gets an SMS with the second factor. As far as I remember Apple primarily uses this scheme. If it supports a different 2FA system I don't know.

  • AFAIK on how Apple controls its environment strictly, I don't think it's possible to use non-Apple devices for two-factor authentication (see "Trusted devices" section). The alternative is to use two-step verification with SMS instead.
