How to activate two-step authentication on iPhones and increase your protection

The threats to the devices are increasing, and this makes the users of the devices iphone (or any other smartphone) look for ways to stay safe. Apple offers the ability to achieve this by using the activation of two-step authentication -also known as 2FA-. We show you how to do this.

It’s often said that iPhones are more secure than Androids, but this is only true when all layers of defense are set up correctly, and that’s where two-factor authentication comes into play. Without her, an attacker only needs your password to steal your accountwhich is an easy task if you use a weak password – or reuse the same password across multiple accounts or rely on often unsecured public WiFi networks.

However, with two-factor authentication, hackers must bypass the second lock: a six digit verification code displayed on a trusted device. Therefore, they have it much more complicated.
