In the wake of massive nude photos leak, Apple adds another layer to iCloud security

September 8th, 2014 at 6:30 PM
Apple iCloud Security Breach

Apple has insisted that iCloud has no real security issues, although that hasn’t stopped the company from putting more security measures in place to keep its users’ data safe anyway. MacRumors reports that Apple is now sending out email alerts whenever you or anyone else tries to log into your iCloud account on a web browser. MacRumors notes that “the alerts are being sent out even if the specific browser has been used previously to access iCloud, but this is presumably a one-time measure that will not be repeated for future logins with that combination of browser and machine.”

FROM EARLIER: Tim Cook vows to improve iCloud security, prevent future ‘nudegates’

This is just the first planned move to bolster iCloud security in the wake of last week’s huge iCloud-related leak of nude celebrity pictures. Last week we learned Apple plans to start sending out emails and push notifications to iTunes users whenever they or someone else tries to change their password, restore iCloud data to a new device, or log into an iTunes account for the first time. Given how much Apple has riding on making sure its upcoming mobile payments platform on the iPhone and iWatch is a success, it’s not surprising to see the company working overtime to reassure users after a major hack.
