    Recently I lost the ablility to have my Apple devices sync messages via my iPhone, iPad and MBA. I'm guessing I accidently turned the sync option off. Can anyone tell me how to restore it. For example, if I got a text on my iPad, it would repeat on my iPhone and MBA.

    Assuming you have 2FA, maybe you can turn iCloud message on. Other than that, go to “Text message forwarding” and turn on your iPad and Mac. If they are turned on, turn off, restart your iPhone, and turn back on.

    I cannot find any more settings for message forwarding features. There may be more settings with 2FA on. Mine is off.

    Is "2FA" mean Facebook?

    Two factor authentication.

    Thanks! I googled 2FB and didn't come close to that. The closest one was "2faced***".

    And yes, I'm very familiar with Two factor authentication. To me it means I have to run downstairs to get my phone.
