Application password feature not available

Previously I had WordPress 5.5.3 installed in my local system. I updated the WordPress to 5.6, but I can't find the application password feature under user profile section.

  • There are no plugin installed.
  • Only twentytwentyone theme is installed.
  • PHP version is 7.3.21

Is it because its in localhost? If it is then it should be mentioned somewhere in the integration guide:

Application Password Feature Missing

The integration guide says:

By default, Application Passwords is available to all users on sites served over SSL/HTTPS. This can be customized using the wp_is_application_passwords_available and wp_is_application_passwords_available_for_user filters.

Those filters also check for the WP_ENVIRONMENT_TYPE, so you could add define( 'WP_ENVIRONMENT_TYPE', 'local' ); to your wp-config.php file for local sites so it works on localhost.
