Apple introduces two-step verification for Apple ID accounts

Apple is building up security around Apple iCloud and Apple ID accounts this month, introducing a new two step verification safeguard.

Apple two step verification

The new process makes users verify their identity on a trusted device before allowing any changes to the account information, which is a great way to safeguard against someone else gaining access to your account. The method is similar to the way Google’s two-step login works, and Apple sends out a verification code to one of your devices, that must be entered in before you can be granted information to your sensitive data. Incase you forget your main password or lose a trusted device, users will also receive a recovery key as a last verification method.

Unfortunately though, the two-step verification is only available to users in the United States, UK, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand, so if you live outside of those regions you’re outta luck.
