But as it turns out: That doesn't protect everything. Dani Grant, a computer programmer who spotted this, thinks that Apple's approach to two-step verification is a half measure. But if someone cracks just your password, they can not only see i Messages, but also see your billing address and part of your credit card numbers.
Even if you turn on two-step verification, someone can still get in on another device by using just your password to see your i Message conversations and impersonate you on that chatting platform -- and also see what you bought on the App Store and i Tunes. "It is amazing how much access one can get," she said, pointing out what happens if someone breaks into a person's i Message.
Maybe you're thinking, "not my teen...” consider this: research tells us that one in four teens are sending these messages and approximately 48% are on the receiving end.
With statistics like that it's evident that someone's teen is doing it.
The Guardian first reported Apple's latest expansion of two-step verification.
If you're already signed into Face Time or i Message on an i OS device, you won't suddenly need to worry about authenticating your identity.
That's because Apple will text you a temporary numerical code, which you will need besides your Apple ID and password to get in. That was already proven during the celebrity hacks.No Further Text Used primarily on message boards after a catchy title which usually says all you really need to say, so in the text box you simply put nft, thereby implying you've got nothing further to say and it's great when your letting off steam.Tara West graduated from the University of Tulsa with a bachelor's degree in business administration and human resources.Let's remember why Apple expanded this security feature last year.In August, hackers were able to guess the passwords (or answers to security questions) to many celebrities' i Cloud accounts.
