iCloud Now Has The Important Security Feature Apple Promised Would Help Protect Your Data

From what we have from a MacRumors report, Apple is going to activate the two-factor authentication for iCloud which was a much needed move after the Apple cloud storage service was attacked by a hacking ring that leaked a number of celebrity nude photos online that were stored on iCloud. This two factor authentication is the new security feature which has been designed in order to enhance the overall security as it verifies your identity and protects your data in a better way.

This two factor system works by sending a code to your smartphone or any device that you prefer. This happens as soon as you log into your iCloud account from a new device. This is a perfect way to ensure that your account always remains in safe hands and is never hacked. In case you have any trouble in learning how to use this new two factor authentication feature then you can simply check the procedure online.

The account on iTunes already had this two factor system which helped protect purchases made in iTunes and the App Store but this didn’t work with the iCloud up until now. It's important to note that two-factor isn't automatically set up for iCloud. You have to log in and enable it first.
