Apple has introduced two-step verification to its cloud based service, iCloud.com. iCLoud is used to store and sync mail, photos, contacts and other information among Apple devices.

Now, Apple has rolled out two-step verification to give a security boost for Apple ID or the iCloud account. This requires the users to provide extra information to prove their identity while logging in.

When accessing a web-app like mail, contacts, calendar on iCloud.com, a text mesage containing a four digit code will be sent to the Apple device that is connected with this iCloud account. Entering this code is mandatory to access any web apps of iCloud.com. This condition, however, is an exception when using ‘Find my iPhone’ feature.
