Do not require password for free downloads | #ios | #apple | #iossecurity


Ok, so iOS has this option, but does it even do anything? I swear the App Store asks me for password every time I try to download anything. Like now I installed HBO Max and it wanted me to type in my long and complicated password, which is long and complicated for security reasons and I don’t want to enter it willy nilly because that’s actually a security issue.

I also manage a few devices for elderly people who don’t know or care about their own passwords and this makes it worse. They don’t understand why they need a password to download some crap app that makes cat sounds when they shake the phone.

What is funny is when I do that on Apple TV, it asks me for confirmation on my iPhone… with a single tap, because apparently my iPhone is now a trusted device.

Is this option working for anyone?
