Apple ID verification code

Michael Gillman
I'm trying to sign in to ICloud on my 2006 Mac Pro running OSX 10.7.5. ICloud wants me to enter a verification code on the MacPro but I can't find anywhere to enter it. This is very frustrating. Anyone have any idea where to enter the dang code?

Mike

Yes. Type the verification code right after your password (no spaces) in the password field. That should work.


(I sort of wish I had known that before I upgraded my old circa 2007 Mac Mini on Lion which I used as a media server to a newer Mac Mini.)

This worked on an old iPod Touch stuck on iOS 6 a few weeks ago.
