I faced the fact that the security was worth the effort a while back and now just try to manage it as easily and effectively as possible.

    While obviously I agree about the security benefits, that seems to be beside the point here. Shouldn't users have the option to opt out at their own risk? What's next? Requiring all users to use FileVault?

    And that's exactly what the current class action law suit says. Apple, however, appears to be between a "Rock and a Hard Place" with this one. Folks who have had their accounts hacked blame Apple for the lack of security and those users who are annoyed by 2FA are suing Apple.

    Apple does need to simplify 2FA so that it's not as complex as it appears to be now. Tighter security for accounts of all types (not just Apple) is here to stay and unfortunately the price we have to pay to stay safe.

    Where do you think the location comes from?
