    Apple security hole: passwords can be reset with only email address and DOB

    http://www.theverge.com/2013/3/22/4...e-id-passwords-reset-with-email-date-of-birth

    I'd suggest people factor potential privacy issues into their decision making process when it comes to choosing whether or not to enable 2-factor authentication. Setting DOB to something bogus in the distant past sounds like a wise choice to begin with, frankly.
