The Chain of Trust – Intego Mac Podcast, Episode 111

Posted on November 29th, 2019 by

New Intego Mac Podcast Episode

Apple’s two-factor authentication system sets up a chain of trust from one device to another. By ensuring your identity on one device, that device can then authenticate you on another device, and provide you with enhanced features, such as an Apple Watch unlocking a Mac, or an iPhone authorizing Apple Pay on a Mac. Understanding this chain of trust helps you better understand how Apple protects you.
