To see if two-factor authentication is turned on, tap Settings > [your name], then tap Password & Security on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Or on your Mac, choose Apple menu  > System Preferences. Click Apple ID, then click Password & Security in the sidebar. If you're using macOS Mojave or earlier, click iCloud.

Set up iCloud Keychain without an SMS-capable phone number

If your country or region isn't listed above, SMS verification isn't available in your country or region. You can still use iCloud Keychain by following these steps:

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

  1. Go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud, and tap Keychain.
  2. Enter your Apple ID password.
  3. When asked if you want to use your device passcode as the iCloud Security Code, tap Create Different Code.
  4. Tap Advanced Options, then choose one of these options:
    • Get a Random Security Code.
    • Don't Create Security Code. If you don’t create an iCloud Security Code, then your iCloud Keychain is stored locally on your device instead of Apple's servers, and will update only across your approved devices.
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete iCloud Keychain setup.

On your Mac

  1. Choose Apple menu  > System Preferences. If you’re using macOS Catalina, click Apple ID. 
  2. Click iCloud, then select Keychain.
  3. Enter your Apple ID password.
  4. Click Advanced, then choose one of these two options:
    • Get a Random Security Code. 
    • Don't Create Security Code. If you don't create an iCloud Security Code, then your iCloud Keychain is stored locally on your Mac instead of Apple's servers, and will update only across your approved devices.
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete iCloud Keychain setup.
