Two-step identity verification reaches more countries


According to various publications, Apple would be carrying out an expansion in other countries of its two-step security implementation to verify the identity of the user. As we explained in a previous post, the system will be the same as that we have been using, that is, the user password would also have to be specified but an identity check would also be added to this by sending a code to the «Search my iPhone »or an SMS directed to a specific device, this would be done to further protect the user from theft, malicious attacks when resetting the password or making purchases without the knowledge of the legitimate user.

This system was presented as a "novelty" in March of this year in United States, United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia, now as many have joined the list.

From 9to5mac they have been able to corroborate this extension,

Today we have confirmed that users in Canada have access to this feature, while we have also received e-mails from users in Argentina and Pakistan stating that the feature is beginning to be rolled out in other countries as well. Since then we know that Mexico, the Netherlands, Russia, Austria, Brazil, Belgium, Portugal and Poland have also joined the list. Let us know in the comments if the feature is already available in your country.

In Spain, from what I have been able to verify, the options within the management of the Apple ID to activate it have not yet been updated, however I don't think they take much longer to activate the option seeing how quickly it is being implemented. As soon as it is available, it is very simple to start it, you simply have to go to the Management page of your Apple ID and activate it in the password and security option, previously answering the two questions that, as a prevention, are asked before to be able to modify anything.

    Today I have checked again in 3 different accounts and it is still not available. It is possible that the update is being carried out in a staggered way and is not reaching all at once.
