Pass the old audit in two stages of new two-factor authentication?

Someone went from the old system of audit in two steps at the new verification of two factors? Or deployment only goes to people who don't use two-step before?


My household has three identifiers Apple.

  • The first ever used anything else two factors, and it has new two-factor authentication to implement. (I did not in place because the user would rather not have the slight inconvenience and stores not anything of any value in this iCloud account.)
  • The second uses two factors verification and has for some time. No two-factor authentication is offered in iCloud for this account security screen, and even when I remove two factors verification, no two-factor authentication is offered. The account never had e-mails from Apple offers two-factor authentication.

    I called Apple, directly about it. AppleCare support people had no additional information. They just said that it would probably place for me later. They were not citing any inner knowledge. They just read me verbatim the 2FA availability public Apple support article.

  • The third is from an old iTunes account there are a dozen years and has all my iTunes purchases. Apple has never allowed this merger with an ID of iCloud, so I still use it, but I don't have that on any iOS device iCloud account, he can not use anything other than text messages SMS for authentication.

I wish we could find an answer to when we will be allowed to use 2FA with situations like my second Apple ID.

I also wish that apple might come to a better solution for the third code of Apple. I realize that content providers have contracts with Apple that restrict or prohibit their ID merger (sigh!), but that would not prevent Apple of engineering this system to allow an iOS device serve as an authenticator for additional code. iOS devices are considered as single user, but many people have more than one Apple. Maybe this will change for the better when the devices iOS supports multiple users, although I would not want to have to go from one user to the other constantly.

  • Why Apple has the code of two factor authentication on the same device that I log in with?

    I just installed Sierra and chose to use the two factor authentication with my iPhone chosen as a device to receive the code.

    But then, Apple displays a digit code 6 on my Mac itself and then asked me to go on my Mac.

    What sense does that make?

    A wild guess - were you log into your account in Safari on Mac when he showed you the digit code 6 on Mac? And you had already completed the sign-in icloud in System Preferences?

    If so, the macOS has been approved, but Safari wasn't. If macOS was able to show the code. It seems strange to first have the same computer application and provide the code, but really it is two layers of security and you had gotten through the first layer already.

  • two-factor authentication is not available for your apple at the moment ID

    (two-factor authentication is not available for your apple at the moment ID), how can I solve this problem? I can't run many features such as Apple Watch unlock in Sierra, please help

    I had this same problem, the message that, ' two-factor authentication is not available for your apple at the moment ID. " All my devices have been updated to the latest version of the software, and all other requirements have been met. I couldn't use two-factor authentication and I couldn't open my mac using my Apple Watch.  After contacting the Apple Support, they told me that because I had an email address older, this address was not "verified." And that the system was not able to verify the address by sending an email with a link as it does normally; He could do that for more recent @me and addresses of @icloud. Apple had to have a service technician manually to send me an email of check to my address I clicked on the link in the email (I don't need to enter other information), and two factors was not available instantly. Hope that you will find your problem will be solved.

    You can not. Two Apple factor authentication is a feature of iOS and OS X, based on your AppleID being associated with iCloud account to send and receive authentication 6-digit codes. An AppleID that is not associated with iCloud account cannot be used for 2-factor authentication.

    I tried to connect to my Apple TV (2nd generation, operating system and updates are up-to-date), log-in failed and indicated that I had to use two-factor authentication which I recently install on my trust Apple devices which included my iMac, iPhone and iPad. As expected, I received a notice on my Apple devices trust with the verification code to six figures to add this code to six figures at the end of my password when signing in the Apple TV. I put my password and add the code check digit at the end on my password. It did not work. Now I can not connect.

  • Two-factor authentication

    On my iMac after Sierra was an option to unlock with Apple Watch (security preferences panel). I click it and it says I need to disable the verification of two factor and enable two-factor authentication. Fine.

    Did. Now the option to activate Apple Watch unlock on the mac has disappeared.

    It works on my other Mac but not the iMac.

    Also in the preferences to iCloud account, then on devices, I see that my Apple Watch can be used to receive the codes!

    Someone knows how to fix these?

    Tried to run iCloud power switch, disconnect the watch and repair, restart everything.

    Just to be clear, the Mac is capable of auto unlock, it's an iMac end of 2015 and system report confirms it is compatible.

    The apple support page also suggests watches should be able to receive the codes:
