    Default Apple allowing two step authentication

    Read all about it: iMore's write-up
    Ally's How-To: Ally's How to set up 2-step verification
    Apple Support doc:

    Set-up allowed only if your current AppleID password meets requirements of at least 8 characters - one of which has to be a number, and another a capital letter... if you change your password today to meet that standard, you will have a waiting period to complete the set-up process.

    Apple enabled two-step verification for iCloud accounts | iMore.com

    Don't know if I will set this up or not.... What about you Keith?

    Enabled. It's the least you can do to protect your account.

    the wait is for those who make a major change in their account... like changing passwords to be compliant with password strength (at least 8 characters, 1 capital letter & 1number)... I'm in the same boat...

    My password was already at the correct strength. However when I logged into set up the 2-step, it said my password was expired and I had to set a new one. So I guess that's why I have to wait 3 days.

    Very good read on the blog side as well as the How To by Ally who dies a great job. For anyone who wants more security protection it is worth doing this. I did it last night and was pleased with the process.

    I need to set this up. Right now I'm trying to remember my darn security questions.. Anyone know how to reset them? I tried to do it by signing in to my apple ID but I didn't see a reset option.

    Yeah I think that's what I will have to do. I wonder what happen to the email support they had? If I had a issue it was easy to just email apple support to get my problem solved. Oh well.

    Also thanks D I tried that article but was still having problems. I'm going to just call them to get it fixed.
