Apple is rolling out its new two-step verification feature for Apple IDs to users in additional countries other than U.S., UK, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand, who were initially availed with optional security feature when it was first launched in late March 2013 after a major security hole was discovered in Apple’s account management.
Users from Canada, Argentina, Netherlands, Russia, Austria, Poland, Brazil, Mexico and other countries can check to exercise their option to verify one of their iOS devices as a “trusted device” in order to receive a verification code to access their Apple ID.
How to do it?
- You will first have to check on the availability of the option which automatically appears in the Password and Security section of Manage My Apple ID when You sign in to My Apple ID.
- If you are a user from U.S., UK, Australia, Ireland or New Zealand, you can choose an SMS-capable phone number to receive text messages with the temporary verification codes Apple uses to verify your identity. While if you are a user from other country then you will have to verify one of your iOS devices as a “trusted device” in order to receive a verification code through the “Find My iPhone app” and access your Apple ID.
Lets be Safe than Sorry and get our Apple IDs verified.
