Back in September, Apple enabled a two-factor authentication (2FA) security option for iCloud in the wake of a celebrity photo hacking scandal. While this helped protect backups, photos, and other personal data stored using Apple's cloud service, it didn't extend to some other commonly used Apple services. According to a Guardian report, Apple is turning on 2FA for the iMessage and FaceTime services starting today.
