Option will appear automatically in account details
Apple is extending its two-step verification option for Apple IDs to a wider range of countries, users say. When the feature first launched in late March, it was restricted to the US, UK, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand. Now though people in Canada, Argentina, and Pakistan are reporting getting the feature, and other countries may be following suit.
Apple has yet to update its FAQ with the new countries. The company does say, though, that the two-step verification option will be automatically added to people's accounts, appearing in the Password and Security section of Manage My Apple ID. At the moment, verification still requires a device with Find My iPhone or SMS support.
