A plaintiff named Jay Brodsky filed a California court with a formal complaint against Apple Inc. in an attempt to approve a class action. The nature of the acts, according to the formal complaint, is based on Apple unlocking the claimant from the use of their personal devices by a business law that requires two-factor authentication that cannot be disabled after a first fourteen (14) days of death.
When two-factor authentication is enabled either by default, on a software update, or accidentally by a user and 14 days have passed, Apple does not allow any mechanism to disable dual factor authentication. Tofactor authentication imposes an external login procedure that requires the user both (i) to remember the password; and (ii) have access to a trusted device or a trusted telephone number to receive an additional six-digit code that must be entered upon logging in addition to the user's set password. A user is not able to disable such dual security measures and is stuck with wasting time logging on to their own device. Tofactor authentication requires additional steps to access any third party passwords or services. Tofactor authentication is required each time you turn on a device.
Apple does not get the user's consent to activate two factor authentication. Apple does not get the user's consent to remove the option forever to disable two factor authentication when enabled. An email with a long paragraph thanks the user and highlights the good features of two factor authentication followed by a simple single last line in an email saying that the link expires on a given date, not sufficient to alert the user to their options and An informed decision to click on the link to disable it.
As a result of Apple's coercive security policies for proprietorships from claimants, claims and millions of similar consumers across the country have been and still are suffering. Plaintiffs and class members have suffered financial losses in terms of disrupting the use of their personal devices and wasting their personal time by spending extra time for easy login.
Plaintiff and Class seek monetary damages as well as declaratory and injunctive relief to prevent Apple from continuing its practice of not letting a user choose their own logging and security procedure.
