So, is the customer always right?

“There’s a valid reason to have what I call weak login credentials,” Kane told KrebsOnSecurity. “Some of our clients clamor for weaker login credentials, such as companies that have a large staff of temporary workers.”

Doing things for customer convenience is not always wise. Better to educate the customer on the long-term effects of their decisions, than to support weak authentication because "the customer asked for it."

Those same customers are likely cursing Greenshades now, rather than thanking them for the convenience...

Two considerations:
1 -- What the company will do with this information
2 -- What anyone who successfully hacks the company will do with this information

And this is in no way limited to iOS or Apple devices...
