Macworld Apple’s two-factor authentication system deflects access to your Apple ID account by requiring that in addition to your password you also have to provide a code that arrives either through a trusted device (an iPhone, iPad, or Mac) or a trusted phone number—one that’s been verified after having been added. Trusted devices are an easier set to manage, because they represent all devices logged into the same Apple ID for use with iCloud. Trusted numbers are a different matter. I’ve long recommended adding not just your own cellular or other phone numbers as trusted numbers, but also that of someone trustworthy who is close to you, like a life partner or family member. That gives you a backup in…

But in a statement Apple said: “End-to-end encryption is a critical capability…
Macworld If you’re reading this story on a browser, you’ll see a small lock icon in the address bar just like you would if you were reading something on 9to5Mac, the Verge, or Apple’s site. For years, it’s been a universal symbol of safety and security… and now Google has announced that it’s going away. Why? Because the lock never actually meant what people thought it meant.
