Dear Mr Frost,
Thank you for enabling two-factor authentication for your Apple ID (•••••@me.com).
Two-factor authentication is an additional layer of security designed to prevent unauthorized access to your account and protect the photos, documents, and other data you store with Apple.
From now on, whenever you sign in with your Apple ID on a new device or browser, you will verify your identity by entering your password plus a six-digit verification code sent to your other devices or a trusted phone number. To learn more, read the FAQ.
Additional security information
If you didn’t enable two-factor authentication and believe an unauthorized user has accessed your account, you can use the link below to return to your previous security settings.
Turn off Two-Factor Authentication.
This link and your Apple ID security questions will expire on March 14, 2017. After this date, the only way to turn off two-factor authentication will be to sign in to your Apple ID account page with your password and a six-digit verification code.

Apple User Group Bulletin – February 16, 2017…………………………………………………………….
On January 6, 2004, the Macintosh was a few days over 20 years old and
Steve Jobs had exciting news: Apple had a new type of software, called
GarageBand, and a new format for the iPod, an iPod Mini with a huge 4GB of
storage. How would we ever fill all that space? With this month’s release
of the newest version of GarageBand, it seems like a great time to watch
its introduction, with John Mayer performing and Steve Jobs explaining the
ways that GarageBand could open a world of possibilities.
This month’s featured “How To” offers a look at how User Group presentations
can take advantage of the new Keynote features introduced in macOS Sierra.
In part two of his series on Keynote, Rick Ortiz, Chair of the Apple User
Group Advisory Board, discusses Collaboration for Keynote, which is a new beta
feature added with the introduction of macOS Sierra and iOS 10.
Interested in a quick presentation for February? Powerful new features are
now available in GarageBand for iOS and Logic Pro X for all levels of music
makers, from enthusiasts to pros, and the topic could be perfect for a
group meeting. Check out GarageBand for iOS – First Look (L549342A-en_US)
and Logic Pro X – First Look (L549343A-en_US). And, for the students in
your group, Apple, Inc. has a wonderful new offer: Students with the proper
ID can purchase Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4, and
MainStage 3 for $199 (USD).
Ambassadors: February is a great month to check out ASW!
As always, if you have an idea for a resource, let us know.
