Apple To Activate Two-Step Verification For Third-Party Apps For iCloud Security

Two-Step Verification

For third-party Apps that access iCloud, Apple is offering App-specific passwords that would allow users to generate unique one-time passwords to sign into iCloud securely. This will be applicable from October 1 and will help in two-step verification process.

If you use iCloud with any third party apps, such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or BusyCal, you can generate app-specific passwords that allow you to sign in securely, even if the app you’re using doesn’t support two-step verification. Using an app-specific password also ensures that your primary Apple ID password isn’t collected or stored by any third party apps you might use.
