putting in the wrong password or having to reset your password on Apple ID. had to contact apple and do every verification and procedure that they ask so that you can reset your password and it could take up to 24 hours SO I WAS TOLD. so tell how after all that it say I have to wait 14 days and I can reset my password after the 14 days. what kind of procedure is that? when you talk to them they will say oh its for security and safety measure. well thats pretty misleading cause I dont feel secure or safe to be locked out of my Apple ID and cant even reset my password until 14 days later. from that experience I can see how much they actually care apple their customers
The lost password experience is a very hard one to nail down correctly. For services that host critical or sensitive bits of information, it's compromise between data protection and user experience.
Like several others, I do think that a 14-day wait time is fairly reasonable considering the type of information that's tied to your Apple ID, like other website access tokens (aka single sign-on), files, mail, photos, iPhone backups, etc.
Don't forget that other actors might
also attempt to have your password reset. So that 14-day window is a moderating ticket rendering an actor who wishes to quickly gain access to your account give up.
I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t use Bitwarden. My wife and I have an enterprise account and it cost us zero dollars a month because we are two users.
We can access each other’s accounts, give obscure 10 Minute Email addresses for usernames for accounts that shouldn’t require interactions, and access accounts from any computer, keychain not required.
Basically what I’m saying is, “USE A BLANKETY BLANK PASSWORD MANAGER!!!!”
I use 1Password for most of my passwords, including my very long (I think 40 character) Apple ID password.
While I do encourage people around me to use a password manager, I won't shove it down their throats. As long as they use unique and complex (16+ non-sensical characters) passwords for every service they have, it's usually sufficient; obviously, after the usual post-it speech.
