Passcodes or the end of the password on iOS 16, detailed by Apple

0 0

Find out how the Apple firm intends to make you give up all your passwords thanks to official details just revealed.

During the Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple presented several new choices for the next version of its mobile OS. Among these, access codes. As the developer states on his site, this is quite simply an “ easier and more secure method of login ” than current passwords, generating a unique private key for each website you want to connect to. .

During an interview with Tom’s Guide magazine , journalist Mark Spoonauer was able to talk to two Apple employees to better understand how this system works. Darin Adler , vice president at Cupertino, explains in particular that traditional passwords are a major “ attack vector ” for hackers: it’s time to step up a gear to protect yourself.

The biometric solution

Adler then explains that each authentication requires using biometric unlocking of your iPhone, through Face ID or Touch ID. Suffice to say that these technologies are much more complex to hack than a simple sequence of a few characters, the effectiveness of which has also been proven in the past to the point that these services are now democratized.

With this, the interview of Tom’s Guide also evokes the case of the connection on other devices. As an example, Kurt Night (of Apple’s marketing department) takes the case of a user who would like to access an account from a computer running Windows . In this case, the Connection with Apple will then generate an access code in the form of a QR code that will suffice to flash to unlock the site. A principle substantially similar to that of Google Authenticator, in short.

To discover this fall

To better understand the access codes, know that Apple showed a detailed video during the Worldwide Developer Conference. We discover how to use the feature on macOS Ventura from Safari , with stunning results in seconds. Judge for yourself:

Finally, Apple reminds that all access codes are actually stored on your device and not online. This way, it is more difficult for a hacker to compromise them remotely.

According to streaming platform analytics service Reelgood, the numbers are very good for Apple and Apple is making a name for itself in the world of SVOD. A bet that was not won in advance. Note that in its report, Reelgood details what works on Apple TV+ . Not surprisingly, it is above all the series that are popular with subscribers. The engagement rate for the latter is 40% higher than for the same period last year. As far as feature films are concerned, Apple is also succeeding, but the growth is less impressive. The apple brand is indeed progressing by 20%. A success that many explain by the recent enrichment of the catalog on the Apple side. The Cupertino company has invested in original programs, and the creativity of the writers is paying off. Apple takes advantage of the fall of Netflix to grow It should also be remembered that Apple, like Disney+, is taking advantage of the fall of the Netflix monster to recover its health. When announcing quarterly results, the Red N saw a loss of nearly one million subscribers over the past three months. People who have largely chosen to cancel to afford another service. For Apple, the qualitative and quantitative increase in the program in the catalog is necessarily a good thing, but the latter comes at the right time. While Netflix is ​​getting bogged down in stories of advertisements and non-sharing of accounts, Apple's solution is becoming the "cool" platform of the moment. It remains to be seen whether Apple will succeed in retaining these subscribers, who are more and more frivolous over time. Next post Apple TV+ is loading up on subscribers this summer
