If you are the owner of an Apple ID, then know this much that two step verification is the new method of authentication. What this does is disallow anybody from using or hacking your account even if that person has access to your password.

You have to prove yourself before you can gain entry into the account. Among the things possible with this foolproof methodology are: signing in to Apple ID, signing in to iCloud, purchasing something from iTunes or iBooks and last but not least getting Apple ID uplift from the mother company.

This Apple ID is the crux of the whole matter. Through it you may peruse your account, scale up your password, scrutinize stored info and keep in touch with iTunes or iCloud. The system works very simply and efficiently.

You operate one or two gadgets. These will register a four digit verification code. And an SMS oriented phone number is crucial as well. Now if you buy anything from the App Store, you will have to verify your ID via a password and four digit code.   

Also a fourteen character recovery key can be yours for the asking. This way you can access your account in case you forgot or misplaced the ID. From iPhone Notifications you may get your verification code too if you please.

This novel feature by Apple is for iMessages and FaceTime as well. With this shield, hackers will stay away and even if they do manage to penetrate the system, they won’t get far. The multi-layered method will ensure that nothing gets out of the account and no one expect the rightful owner gets in.

The beginnings of the whole deal began sometime two years ago. Today however it has reached saturation point. With its activation things will never be the same again. Two step authentication is the wave of the future.

The double protection provided via this technological immunity of sorts is a good thing that has become even better. Unauthorized login is automatically cancelled via this scheme. You cannot have such excellent registration as Apple now offers.

This is in itself a very big favor and absolute amenity that will make things smoother and a lot of people happier. Apple has always taken giant steps and now it has literally taken a leap in the dark.
