Stephen J. Vaughan-Nyhols described three things that must be done first to protect your Apple account, ICloud in his blog. This is what he proposes:

1. First, you need to back up your iCloud data. The easiest way is to back up files from your device to your Mac or PC with a backup iTunes. But unfortunately, iTunes does not back everything up.

2. The second no less important thing is changing passwords. To change your Apple ID password , sign in to your Apple ID account page with any web browser and follow the instructions to reset your password. It is important to understand that your new Apple ID password must contain at least eight characters, a number, an uppercase letter, and a lowercase letter. And most importantly, do not use dumb passwords, such as “ABCDEFGH”, “QWERTY” or “password”.

3. Third, to add another layer of protection: Two-factor authentication (2FA). You can access your account from trusted devices such as your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. after activation 2fa. To use Apple 2FA, you’ll also need a trusted phone number so you can receive verification codes.
Now a lot of hackers who can easily access personal information. And also there are different sites on which password lists can be hacked, and also use one-way hashing to match existing passwords. In this regard, the faster you take on the recommendations of Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, the safer you will feel.
