Class action suit against Apple claims that this security feature was forced on customers

This guy is sueing apple over his inability to read what's in front of him? Seriously?

it is indeed. I left my note 8 at the 17th hole of the golf course (I use my phone for score keep and gps distance) and i couldn't log into the device manager from iphone since i needed another android device to authenticate the login. Luckily it was a private event and i took the golf cart and traced back to the 17th tee

This is one of the more ridiculous things. I hope he gets charged for all of Apples time on top. Though I'm sure it would add up to only 5 minutes time for everyone to look over the facts and laugh. Smdh.

About the only thing more idiotic than this would be a lawsuit over the removal of the FPS. No one forced him to use it, he simply failed to read, makes ya wonder how bad his business or personal finances are doing. Hope the judge dismisses this.

Make a buck on Apple? Apple's lawyers have layers.

Personally I love apple products and their security. Simple answer for this woman, if you don’t like it then switch to Android no one is forcing you to have apple.

Good thing you're not defending the case for Apple. Your argument could actually help validate "his" law suit, as having to switch would not only cost more time but also money...

I do hope that we have the option to opt out - I don’t care for this extra security layer. It’s annoying and I’m not that important.

I'm with Apple on this one. This lawsuit is beyond frivolous.
