As it stands, in theory, a device like this could be used to trigger an alert on the iPhone of any unsuspecting person, who might, in a momentary lapse of concentration, enter a password without thinking. This highlights a need to not only be wary of your Bluetooth settings, but also any random popups asking you for passwords or log-in credentials you weren’t expecting.

So basically, if a random password alert happens on your device, and you’re not trying to sign into a website, then don’t enter your password.

It’s not rocket science. It’s common sense.

But then again, common sense seems to have been thrown out the window in the past many years.

I agree that common sense seems to be becoming a rarity these days. So this type of article is good in that it's a good heads-up to slow down a bit and "think" before acting!

I have notifications and a lot of other stuff turned off. I look at emails and messages at leisure(sometimes not then !)
