IPhone passwords 'shockingly easy' to steal from iOS users


But one mobile app developer has proved how alarmingly easy these prompts are to replicate, making them a potential security flaw through which devious hackers could steal your precious user credentials.

Most of us blindingly complete these popups without batting an eyelid, but this should serve as a wake up call to anyone with an iOS device.
