Apple brings two-step verification to Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Spain!

Apple has expanded its two-step authentication program for Apple IDs to six more countries. Users can add extra security to their accounts in Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Spain. Two-step verification enhances security by allowing you to set up a trusted device to receive a four-digit code when you want to log in to your Apple ID on a new device. Two-step verification originally launched last spring in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

I any imagine why it would take so long to implement a feature such as this for so many.
Can anybody offer some insight?

Sent from the iMore App

anyone get this to work in Canada yet ? i'm stuck waiting for the sms code in the setup process.

I was victim to fraud, and this is really great, but can be a pain if you want to buy an app, and do not have your second device with you. It is my choice to not disable it. So far no problems.
