Apple has started to force developers that want to develop and publish on the MacOS and iOS platform to enable two-factor authentication.
Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type, or subset, of multi-factor authentication. It is a method of confirming users’ claimed identities by using a combination of two different factors: 1) something they know, 2) something they have, or 3) something they are.wikipedia
When I just got around enabling it for one of the apple accounts I’ve got there seems to be a much much higher security barrier in place already…
That’s probably some sort of zero-factor no-authentication. I guess. Anyway: Kudos to Apple for finally forcing people to minimum standards. Properly integrating the second factor will make this so much simpler for users. Apples ecosystem solution already is quite well integrated.
Have you switched all your daily used services to two-factor authentication yet?
