Security Made Easy – I’m Ready!

I can’t wait to see this inaction!

iCloud Keychain: When Apple first announced iCloud Keychain, I was initially perplexed. Why add a password manager to the operating system and default browser when there are plenty of third-party applications that do this, and it isn’t among a feature users are screaming for?

Then I realized that Apple was tackling a real-world security issue by trying to make that issue simply go away for the average user. Apple certainly can’t stop the onslaught of phishing attacks. But it can add a built-in, cloud-based password manager both reduces security risks and improves the user experience. That addition enables users to use complex, site-specific passwords, and those passwords will—with no user effort—synchronize across all of their devices and be available whenever they’re needed (assuming those users use Apple products only, of course).
