Apple Sued Because It’s Making Accounts Too Secure
#1
Quote:Two-factor authentication is one of the best ways to keep your accounts protected, and just like most of the tech companies, Apple itself is also offering such a feature to its users.

And yet, New York-based Apple customer Jay Brodsky believes that two-factor authentication is a huge headache, and he is now sending the Cupertino-based firm to court because users aren’t allowed to disable this feature after two weeks.

Brodsky claims Apple violates the U.S. Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, California's Invasion of Privacy Act, and he explains in court documents that two-factor authentication causes “economic losses,” not only to him, but also to “millions of similarly situated consumers across the nation.”

As noted by [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register], there are some uncanny mentions in the lawsuit documents, including that Apple enabled two-factor authentication on Apple IDs with a software update around September 2015. In reality, this security feature is offered as optional and users need to manually turn it on.

Furthermore, the man accuses Apple of making it harder to use devices, as two-factor authentication is enabled when products like iPhone and Macs are turned on. This isn’t the case, as the feature is only required when setting up the device and configuring an Apple account for the first time.
