Apple Hacked?! - Scott Lynch Agency Skip to main content

WHAT HAPPENED: Recent news reports indicate that Apple has been threatened by a malicious hacking group.  Apple was instructed to comply with certain demands by April 7 or all data will be removed from the 300 million iPhones, iPads, and other devices that are connected to allegedly compromised iCloud accounts.

WHAT CAN YOU DO:  Ensure you are properly protecting your iCloud account by resetting your iCloud account password and taking full advantage of Apple’s Two-factor Authentication services.

The two-factor authentication feature can be enabled right from your iPhone in just a few simple steps:

  1. Go to Settings > iCloud > tap your Apple ID
  2. Tap Password & Security
  3. Tap Turn on Two Factor Authentication

We encourage you to take these steps at your earliest convenience.
