One of the common bits of advice you’ll see people giving you around this celebrity picture hack is to enable two-factor authentication on your accounts — including Apple’s. That’s good advice, but it wouldn’t have protected any of these celebrities and it doesn’t protect the other accounts that are compromised by hackers that are able to obtain an Apple ID and password. The best thing that Apple could do right now is expand its two-factor security to cover all iCloud services, not just account resets and purchases from new devices. Asking someone to enter another form of identification on a restore or when logging into an account from a new device or location would be good next steps.
