How to enable 2 step verification for your Apple iCloud account (and keep those private photos safe!)
Apple_-_My_Apple_ID

In light of the recent breach of over 100 celebrities iCloud accounts (and the publishing of some photos I"m sure they wish were still private). We thought it might be a good idea to take you through just how easy it is to enable 2 step verification for your Apple iCloud  account.

  1. Go to My Apple ID.
  2. Select Manage your Apple ID and sign in.
  3. Select Password and Security.
  4. Under Two-Step Verification, select Get Started and follow the onscreen instructions.

Why do this - because even if someone guesses your iCloud password (as in the case of the recent breach) they still won't be able to access your account without a 4 digit verification code sent to one of your trusted devices.

If like me your entire life (Photos, Calendars, Contacts, Notes and mush more) are on Apple's iCloud then I suggest you head over there right now and protect yourself.

Don't believe me? Then check out Apple's FAQ why it's better.
