Apple Adds 2-Step Verification for IDs

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Logins for Apple Inc. services will not come with an extra layer of security, albeit optional.

The company recently announced the addition of two-factor authentication.

“Your Apple ID is the key to many important things you do with Apple, such as purchasing from the iTunes and App Stores, keeping personal information up-to-date across your devices with iCloud, and locating, locking, or wiping your devices. Two-step verification is a feature you can use to keep your Apple ID as secure as possible,” explains the company via its support page.

To receive the security, users can can simply select “Manage your Apple ID,” login, select “Password and Security,” then find the two-step verification option to begin the setup.
