Apple is planning to add more security measures to help protect its users following a celebrity photo hacking incident.

CEO Tim Cook told The Wall Street Journal that Apple Inc. will use email and push notifications to let users know when someone tries to restore iCloud data on a new device, change an account password or attempts an initial log on to an account with a new device. Previously there were no notifications for restoring iCloud data.

Apple expects to start sending notifications in two weeks.

An Apple spokesman confirmed the report Friday but declined to comment further than what was said in the interview.

On Tuesday Apple acknowledged computer hackers broke into the accounts of several celebrities. The company said it found no evidence of a widespread problem in iCloud or its Find my iPhone service.
