@AppleSupport in DM @AppleSupport I just got off of a 1hr tech support call; would like to give feedback. What is the feedback URL please? @PreetBharara @MalcolmNance Being led through the process by a knowledgeable expert is tremendously helpful. Thank you Mr Bharara. @Apple is on the verge of requiring 2FA. And they also require a phone number. Lazy thinking. There must be a better way.When you're thinking, really thinking, about what it would be like if Beavis & Butthead were rich.
