Following an embarrassing hacking attack last year, Apple has introduced new security measures for two of its most popular apps.
Apple is introducing a two-step authentication process for iMessage and FaceTime. Now, if a user tries to log into an account for one those apps on a new device, they will first need to input a PIN sent to a device that is already linked to the account.
This form of security is far from revolutionary, but it adds another level of protection to keep digital intruders out of online services.
