The recent hacking of celebrities nude photos is making some people wonder how safe their own photos and other personal data on iCloud.
Some people have the question that whether the nude photos scandal is due to the unsafety of iCloud. According to this question, Apple company has gave the explanation that the weak password of Apple ID caused the celebrity leaked photos scandal. Whatever the reason is, now I think what we need to do is to strengthen our iPhone iCloud safety. Here, I have several helpful ways to strengthen iCloud safety.
1. Use two-step verification
After the celebrity nude photos scandal, Apple company has come out this method to fix the bug of iCloud account. Under this setting, iCloud requires you to enter your password as well as a 4-digit verification key to access your account, which can make sure your Apple ID’s safety when it is obtained by others. Please refer to the following instructions on t he picture.
2. Reset your iCloud account.
It is necessary for you to set a new iCloud account instead of using the same Apple ID. Because when you use the Apple ID, it is at risk when your iPhone connected to App stores, iTunes, Mac App store. Use a different account and keep it in your mind. Never tell others.
3. Reset your account password
Create a complicate and strong password using numbers, hard-to-guess words, symbols and animal names but are easy for you to remember. Don’t set your password with your birthday, your name or just numbers. Plus, don’t use same password for every account. Remember: don’t share it with anyone.
Apple products have played an important role in our daily life. So to protect our privacy and strengthen the iCloud safety is also urgent. The above ways are just what I thought of, if you have any other ways to keep the iCloud account safety, comment here and I would be appreciative.
