    Apple: How to rest your password

    This is bugging me big time, but not too sure if there is anything I can do about it really.

    I seem get about 1-2 legit Apple password reset e-mails a day which makes me think someone is clearly trying to hack into my account. In the past year or so, I've become a lot 'smarter' around my passwords and use KeePass to generate and store all my credentials for various accounts. I don't think I have a password now that I actually know! My Apple password is a very long random mix, so hopefully no one will be able to gain access but short of changing the e-mail address my iTues account is linked to, any suggestions how I can try and combat this?

    You've not got an app or something that's trying to elevate access or something have you?

    Did you install anything extra just before this all started?

    I use 2 step verification, you could turn that on?

    I would not have though so. All the apps are legit ones from the App store and could not imagine any of them forcing a password reset or anything like that?

    Edit: Enabled. That's made me feel a bit more secure already.
