    Default Apple's Two-Step Verification Process for the Apple ID Expanded to More Countries


    Apple recently rolled out its two-step authentication system including verification via SMS for Apple ID users in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Spain. Originally spotted in Germany by Caschys Blog, Apple’s list of countries in which two-factor authentication is supported has been updated. The company’s FAQ page regarding the service has also been modified to reflect the changes.

    Originally rolled out in the US, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and the UK, Apple’s opt-in two-step verification system providers an extra layer of security to Apple ID account holders. The six new locales added to the original launch group represent the service’s first official expansion since it went live in March of last year. When activated, users are required to enter both a password and a unique four-digit verification code when making changes to their Apple ID or conducting iTunes purchases from a new device. Codes are sent out to trusted devise via the Find my iPhone app or SMS text.

    In May of 2013, users living in many of the same countries added to Apple’s list today reported activation of the service but access only lasted a few hours. The brief uptime led many to speculate that the feature was given a premature launch.

    It should be noted that as a user’s Apple ID is carried across iTunes, iCloud, the Online Apple Store and even Apple support, securing the asset is the most important task. Apple’s two-step verification system is a major security feature that protects against credit card theft, reactivation of a stolen device and more.

    Not a good idea for my household. There are 6 Apple products in my name (account) but I only personally use 3. Would there be a problem there or do they understand this?
    It's only because of the credit card that's needed and it's been 7 years (and lots of money).
