Two-step Apple ID verification reaches several new countries

updated 12:25 pm EST, Thu February 20, 2014

Supporting regions still under a dozen

Apple has brought its two-step verification process to several more countries, the company's support pages show. Until today, only the US, UK, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand were supported. Now however the list also includes Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Spain.

Two-step verification is an option that requires a PIN sent to a secondary device before changes can be made to an Apple ID account, or iTunes/App Store purchases can be made from a new device; it can be toggled on through the Password and Security section of My Apple ID. PINs are delivered either through Find My iPhone or compatible SMS carriers.

In May of last year Apple accidentally made two-step verification available in a wide number of countries, sowing confusion before access was limited again. Many major regions, most notably India and China, are still without the feature.
