What can Apple do to reassure users that iCloud is safe?
rtrembley 1 year ago
Apple got a lot of press this week for essentially giving a "hacker" (I hesitate to call it actual hacking, it was more like clever thevery) access to Wired's Mat Honan's iCloud account. I heard an interview with Honan on NPR yesterday, and the person who took over his accounts essentially deleted his digital life, and things such as childhood photos of his daughter with her now deceased grandparents. Sure, in an ideal world he would have had everything backed up, but most of us,including myself, do not always practice what we preach. I'm not sure how much this has shaken people's confidence in integrating their personal life with iCloud, but it couldn't have improved confidence. What can Apple do to reassure people that they can keep your personal data safe, when even tech savvy people like Honan can lose everything without really doing anything wrong from a security standpoint? How would you handle something like this if it was your business?
