In an email sent out to developers today, Apple has announced that starting on February 27, all developer accounts will require two-factor authentication to be enabled. After that date, developers will not be able to sign into their Apple IDs without two-factor authentication (via MacRumors).

For those who aren’t yet aware, two-factor authentication is an extra layer of security designed to ensure that you’re the only person who can access your Apple ID, even if someone knows your password.¬†Once you enable it, a verification code from a trusted device will be required for logging on to your developer account.

So, if you are an iOS or a Mac developer but do not yet have two-factor authentication enabled for your Apple ID, you should set it up before Feb. 27. For instructions on how to enable it for your account, visit this page.
