Apple ID: Set up two-factor authentication

Two-factor verification is always a good idea, and anyone who is security- and privacy conscious should find it in their interest to set it up wherever possible. As a user of a number of Apple devices, I have had it set up on my Apple ID for some time. Before turning it on, you should ensure that two-step verification is turned off. Here’s how:

iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch:

  1. Go to Settings > Your name
  2. Click Password & Security
  3. Click “Turn on Two-Factor Authentication”


  1. Go to the Apple Menu > System Preferences
  2. Click iCloud
  3. Click Account Details
  4. Go to the Security tab
  5. Click”Turn on Two-Factor Authentication”

That should see you sorted.
