We've talked about how two-factor authentication keeps you more secure, but basically it means that a hacker who gets your password won't be able to log in unless they also have physical access to your device. Generally, two-factor authentication requires installing yet another app, for generating codes, but Apple devices have this feature built in, and they can even fill in the field for you. After setting this up, your Apple device will automatically offer verification codes for you every time you log in to the service on any of your devices. It's really slick, and it's a lot faster than applications like Authy or Google Authenticator. Note that if you have an existing password manager, you can import your passwords to Apple's system.
