Current status, logged in to multiple devices on iCloud services, and more.
I was asked to use two-factor authentication, and found that this is a good idea. I also want to change the email address used so that I can log in and sort both using a browser on my laptop through the https://appleid.apple.com website. However, I was asked to answer the safety questions I had about 15 years ago when I was a younger Smart Alec (I'm still a Smart Alec, unfortunately only older, unfortunately).
If I know my best friend's name at school, that's about it My cat (I should have tried that), Lord Vader, or e1e7ec2204d600993d9c18a1ec675504,
Now set the password settings on my phone the questions: /
I know I can call Apple to reset it. What I want to know in the meantime (because I'm lazy so I do not get to it right away) is:
- Will I be automatically logged off sooner or later because I did not answer the questions?
- Can I set up two-factor authentication without having to answer the questions?
- If I can, the questions are no longer asked? That would be a convenient way to solve the problem 🙂
- Bonus points (or would I, if I had the representative), can I use an authentication app (such as a TOTP app or Yubikey, etc.) instead of a phone number for two-factor authentication? The use of a phone number is in my opinion (and others) hardly better than no 2FA.
Scratch the bonus points, it was answered here, give the kudos in one voice.
So, in short, * Should I still press the 2FA button "turn on" in my phone?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
