Seems someone from China was trying to hack my Apple ID. Due to 2-factor verification, was able to deny access and then I quickly changed password and forced sign-out of all accounts. Perhaps my password appeared in some data leak— it was not changed since 2 years.

Y’all make sure to enable 2-factor authentication and change passwords from time to time.

    @ostream 2 or MFA needn't necessarily mean providing your mobile number and typing out the OTP. It could be an RSA token or an Authenticator as well

    Judging from your handle, who says you didn't leak the passwords yourself?

    @ostream even though I agree with you on the forced stuff and I got kicked out of some shit because my phone broke (and I didn't have 2fa enabled yet somehow it required a sms or previously logged in device). MFA is a good thing and it should be forced in some cases. Just because you use a password manager doesn't mean you can't lose control over your account. MFA can help with that and recovery.

    I use yubikeys by the way. Not phone crap. It's also required to get in my password manager.
