Apple Adds two step verification in iMessege and Facetime

Apple Two step verification

Apple has now included two-factor authentication to its iMessege and Facetime, which will thicken the security for two major iPhone and Mac features.
The two factor authentication may sound simple enough but in reality it adds an extra wall of security. It is a second One time code that is needed as you enter your permanent password. The code gets sent in a text message to user's paired smartphone as someone logs into an account. So anyone who tries to crack the password would have the need of other randomly generated password.
Two step verification is not new and is already offered by Google, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox and Microsoft. It no doubt adds an extra armor to your accounts and hence is necessary even if takes few seconds of your time.
