Apple has added yet another layer of security, two-factor authentication, for all the app builders to ensure you’re the only person who can access your account.
The two-factor authentication will not only make Apple IDs more secure, it will also help in improving the security of personal information that is stored by the user with Apple.
As per an anonymous source, Apple in a letter to developer said, “2FA will be required to sign in to your Apple Developer account and certificates, identifiers and profiles starting February 27. This extra layer of security for your Apple ID helps ensure that you’re the only person who can access your account.”
Describing about two-factor authentication on its blog, Apple wrote, “Once signed in, you won’t be asked for a verification code on that device again unless you sign out completely, erase the device, or need to change your password for security reasons. When you sign in on the web, you can choose to trust your browser, so you won’t be asked for a verification code the next time you sign in from that computer.”
The new two-factor authentication will soon be available on iCloud and iTunes for all the Apple devices that run on the latest version of iOS or macOS.
