How to use two-factor authentication for your Apple account without using an Apple device
27 June 2017, 1:45 pm



Here’s a question we don’t receive often at Macworld, but it’s one to ponder. Rajeevan asks:

I don’t own an Apple device currently, and I am operating my Apple account and mail from a Windows computer. Now how can I enable two-factor authentication from my Windows 10 computer and generate an app-specific password?

This question likely popped up because of Apple’s decision to end third-party access to calendars, contacts, and email without using two-factor authentication (2FA) for your Apple ID/iCloud account and generating an app-specific password. You can read a column from May for more details.
