Truth Of Apple’s Two Factor Authentication

Apple Two Factor AuthenticationĀ security sounds great but the truth is although it makes your Apple ID a lot more secure, it can also stop YOU from accessing your Apple ID… Let’s say you change your phone number or your trusted phone gets stolen, if you contact Apple you’ll see a roadblock as Apple will not ask you some security questions, they say they can only advise… But the advice in many cases doesn’t help you retrieve your phone numbers or access your iCloud email account!

Apple claims that they can only ask you to tell them the mobile number linked to your Apple ID, but what if you don’t know it? Well, then you’re stuck!

See Two Factor Authentication sounds a lot more secure, but surely you should be able to gain access to your own Apple ID? Well you can’t and you can’t be asked any security questions, so doesn’t having security questions with answers only you know sound better? Our advice… Think about how much information is linked to your Apple ID and how much you need that info.

Security questions sound old-fashioned but using them allows you to be secure in the knowledge that you can always gain access to your Apple ID when the time comes!
