Current status, signed in on several devices to iCloud services etc.
I was prompted about using two factor auth and thought it a good idea. I also want to change the email address it uses so I used the https://appleid.apple.com site via a browser in my laptop to sign in and sort out both but it asked me to answer the security questions I set up 15 or so years ago.
Knowing me the name of my best friend at school will either be something like My cat (I should've tried that), Lord Vader, or e1e7ec2204d600993d9c18a1ec675504.
Now the password settings via my phone are asking the questions.
I know I can ring Apple to try and reset it. What I want to know in the meantime (because I'm lazy so I won't get round to doing it soon) is:
- Will I be automatically logged out sooner or later because I failed the questions?
- Can I set up two factor auth without needing to answer the questions?
- If I can, will the questions stop being asked? That would be a convenient way to solve the problem :)
So, in short, should I press the "Turn on" 2FA button in my phone just yet?
