    According to an Apple Support email, we can know users should obtain app-specific passwords when they want to access iCloud data by third-party apps from June 15. You can get more details from this post. And top free guides of app store seo also available at tapaso.com.

    Apple's iCloud is an Internet-based data repository that syncs information across user devices. App-specific passwords are designed to provide a layer of protection to the Apple ID credentials users need to log in to iCloud. Apps from the App Store that integrate with iCloud via Apple APIs also do not need app-specific passwords to be created as you never type a password into them directly.

    To use app-specific passwords, you must first enable two-factor authentication for your Apple ID if you haven't already. The security measure ensures that users can still link up their iCloud account to apps and services not provided by Apple, while also avoiding the need to disclose their Apple ID password to third parties. 

    The feature also means that iCloud users will need to activate enhanced password-authentication protocols to keep using third-party apps as they do now. Rather than share their Apple IDs and Apple ID passwords with third-party apps, users create a unique password solely for the program they're using that will still allow them to sign in to iCloud. These changes offer additional safeguards to make your Apple account even more secure. 

    Actually, it is definitely a good way to protect our Apple ID passwords in insecure network environment. We will keep on updating the latest mobile app development news. Besides that, we can also offer you professional aso services to drive app downloads. Contact us now!
