Beginning February 27, Apple will require developers to have two-factor authentication setup for the Apple ID used to log into developer account.
Apple sent an email to developers on Wednesday, announcing the change. The iPhone maker says the move is intended to help keep developer accounts more secure by ensuring third-parties cannot gain access.
In an effort to keep your account more secure, two-factor authentication will be required to sign in to your Apple Developer account and Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles starting February 27, 2019. This extra layer of security for your Apple ID helps ensure that you’re the only person who can access your account. If you haven’t already enabled two-factor authentication for your Apple ID, please learn more and update your security settings.

Developers that fail to turn on two-factor authentication for their Apple IDs will not be able to log in to their accounts from February 27 on.
Two-factor authentication requires a verification code from a trusted device when logging into an Apple account.
