Apple switches two-stage authentication to iMessage and FaceTime




Apple has two stage authentication added to iMessage and FaceTime, after earlier iCloud and iTunes were provided with secure login protection. Users that enable login protection, should an additional password types at login.

Apple logo To log on FaceTime and iMessage have users through the Apple website to generate a second login code, a onetime password, which they then need to enter in the app. This is done in addition to the usual password. The more secure login method should lead to malicious less easy access to an account.

Users must enable the secure login method itself. ICloud and iTunes this was already enabled. Apple is relatively late in rolling out two-step authentication; virtually all competitive Internet companies offer secure login method already longer.

During the past summer iCloud came negative news when it appeared that nude pictures of celebrities were stolen, including recommended answer security questions. Apple is one of the few companies that still rely on security for answers to security questions.
