How the process in two steps of authentication does not work if you are not in an area of cellular service

Outside cellular service areas, IS those who know how the two step aunthicatuon process works in an iPhone 6, using the operating system iOS 9.3.4?  Would a being completely locked out of their iphone and apple services until they could find themselves in a cell service area? Or can it be accessed by a public wifi? Who beg to differ on whether or not it is beneficial to use when you travel?


I did a little research to see if all Apple items shed light...

See "How it works" in the Apple ID - Apple Support for two-factor authentication - a time that a device is approved, he'll never ask again unless you perform one or more of several things to "break the connection.

If I were you, I would spend it TURNED off if you fear that one of these things could happen while you might not be able to obtain the code by SMS

Frequently asked questions about the audit in two steps for Apple ID - Apple Support

I'm confused as to why Apple would use two different expressions for what seems to be the same:

  • "Two -authentication"- and
  • "Two -step".

The above two articles begin with a statement like: [underlining is unique, "BOLD" is synonymous with]

"Two-factor authentication is just an extra layer of security of your ID Apple aiming to sure you are the only person who can access to your account, even if someone knows your password."

«The two-step verification is an additional security feature for your Apple which designed to prevent anyone to access or use your account, same ID is they know your password.»

Maybe someone with more experience can shed some light on your question and MY confusion?
