Apple users across the world are on an all new high. According to reporrs, Apple has rolled out its two-step verification feature for Apple ID for a dozen new countries, including India.
The Cupertino-based tech giant took to the week on a good note by expaning the availability of its Apple ID two-step verification. And with the new roll out, the feature has moved from featuring in just 11 countries to 59 countries in total.
In case you aren't aware of how the two-step verification feature works, it apparently adds an extra layer of security for the users' Apple ID. This reduces the chances of hackers compromising their account.
The feature requires a user to enter a verification code before they can finally sign in with their Apple ID. The 4-digit verification code can be received via SMS or the Find My iPhone app.
"Interestingly, a small number of the countries Apple lists as new above have had the feature for at least a year, but perhaps that was an unofficial, limited rollout," 9to5Mac states.
Previous to this, the two-step verification feature was already introduced in the US, UK, Germany, Italy, Japan and others back in March 2013. Stay tuned to Gizbot for more updates!
