Apple finally "two-step" up their iCloud and iTunes security
Considering Apple hold a reported 500m credit card details, you would think that their security measures are the most robust out there. Well, they aren't/weren't.
Apple, along with Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft, were hit in January this year with a security breach after hackers exploited a vulnerability in Oracle's web-browsing software which prompted the others to give their current measures a serious rethink.
Already introduced by Google, the new "two-step" security measure requires a user to send a code to their mobile phone in order to verify themselves if using a new computer to make a purchase.
The new security features can be switched on by updating your user profile over at the Apple website. Hopefully this will become the norm for every merchant that we entrust with our credit card details.
