Identifying a Real Apple ID Password Dialog

Dan Frakes:

My least favorite iOS dialog, asking for my Apple ID password (or is it App Store?) with no explanation why.

Dave Wood:

There’s a relatively unknown trick to this. When it’s really the system asking, you can’t multitask away from it. You must hit Cancel (or enter your password/OK). A fake dialog will let you swipe away. So always try to swipe up into multitasking before filling it out.

Previously: macOS 10.12.2 Impedes Safari Bookmarklets.

Update (2018-07-20): Sami Samhuri:

Just to keep everyone on their toes the Apple Store app shows an identical looking dialog that is part of the app itself.
