+ - Apple Patents Security Measure Involving "Smart" P->

Submitted by SniperJoe
SniperJoe (1984152) writes "Given the increasingly sensitive nature of data on mobile phones and laptops, including data used to initiate and process financial transactions, Apple has patented a new method of securing password recoveries. This method of securing the credentials used for recovering passwords is based on the idea of "splitting a users password recovery secret among two devices that are never carried together at one time." In this case, a "smart" power adapter and the device. Only by having both of those items can passwords be recovered, allowing access to the phone or laptop. Personally, I travel quite a bit and I have both of those items with me on numerous occasions."
