    That bugged me about MacOS too. There’s no way to 100% distinguish real system prompts from spoofs.

    It’s a blog article. Worth a read.

    The link shows a dev can just make up his own dialog box that looks like it is from Apple and ask for password.

    Keep in mind that the popups with the your Apple ID email on them aren't possible.

    Damn I remember getting two password prompts quite close together a few days ago and for the life of me I can't remember what I was doing at the time. Just I always do, I quickly hammered in my password to get the box out of the way and carried on what I was doing.
