Possible iCloud security loophole!

iCloud and MobileMe - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hi guys, I've noticed a possible security loophole in the way Apple notifies us when our iCloud account has been hacked or amended.

Tonight I changed my password for my iCloud. Even though I've setup a non Apple email address to notify me if such activity happens I was only notified on my iCloud email address. BUT NOT on my non Apple email address. So if I had been hacked I would not know anything if the hacker immediately deleted the email received on my hacked Apple email!! The hacker can then change my password in which case I am stuck and in trouble!

Is there a way I can be more secure where an email is received to my non Apple email address?

I have now setup 2 step verification. But want to be notified on my secondary email address of any suspicious activity.
