Apple has increased the security options of its FaceTime and iMessage apps by adding two-step identity verification. Most web sites, apps, and services use one-step verification, typically a username and a password. Two-step verification requires a second form of authentication, sometimes a second password, code, or other token, making it much more secure. Apple has offered two-step verification for creating and accessing Apple IDs for several years, but it is offering this extra layer of security for FaceTime and iMessage users to help protect identities and prevent hacking. Several celebrity accounts were hacked last year. Apple has published the instructions to turn on two-step verification on its support web site.
