Apple’s enhanced login security: fail. I have no idea who came up with this new scheme but, frankly, it’s terrible.
Let’s start at the beginning. Passwords now have six separate requirements. Requiring a letter, a number, a capital letter, and at least 8 characters is fine with me. But “Not contain more than three consecutive identical characters” is just plain wrong. The actual requirement is more than two consecutive identical characters. I know this because one of my attempts at creating a new password had three consecutive characters producing the error message shown to the left. Somebody at Apple doesn’t know the difference between ≥ and >. In a technology company this is a disgrace.
But it gets even worse. I’ve unfortunately become accustomed to the idiotic “shared secrets” security questions that some sites have managed to come up with. Whether Apple’s are better or worse is hard to say. But “Who was your first teacher?” and “What was the first album you owned?” are only two of the fifteen questions you get to select. Five choices per security question, each dumber than the previous one. For those who like to keep track of these things, I’ve included all the security questions below.

To top it all off, Apple’s ID site seems to use Flash. I could be wrong about this, but my password manager (RoboForm for Mac) doesn’t fill in the form. That usually indicates a site is using Flash. Apple’s war on Flash mobile is now history as Adobe has given up on that product. To even suspect that Apple is using Flash on their site is ironic, at best.
