Apple Id Password Verification Enter Code

After you enable two-factor authentication, you’ll need to enter a verification code to log in using your Apple ID on your new device or browser.

Each time you sign in using your Apple ID on a new device or browser, you’ll need to verify your identity with a six-digit code. There are several ways to get a verification code. You can use the code displayed on the trusted device, request a text message or phone call, or create the code using the trusted device.

If you have iOS 11.3 or later installed on your iPhone, you don’t have to constantly enter a verification code. In some cases, the trusted phone number will be confirmed on the iPhone automatically in the background. You don’t have to take any additional steps, and your account will still be protected with two-factor authentication.
