    Why is iCloud so temperamental with passwords?

    For example, even though you enter a 100 per cent correct password, sometimes it still won't let you in.

    At least with MS, it's either right or wrong but with iCloud you're never quite sure.

    yes I have gotten that too. on the phone you get the please sign into iCloud service. I found the solution to that the nit won't accept the password hit cancel then click on th iCloud account and sign in there that worked. I had a hard time signing into my itunes account to download a app from the mac app store.

    Glad I'm not the only one!

    Hard to believe that such a resource-rich company can have such a fundamental flaw in their products.

    oh no... i'm damn sure my password is correct...

    I think u'r getting confused with the fact Apple repetitively asks for password 100 times...... *not* its incorrect, just for security

    That's totally different than being an incorrect password. But it still *** me off.... One time is enough... but there's gotta be a compromise... unfortunately, with Apple, they'd rather make the user angry than happy. U live with it coz it ain't gonna change ever.

    u can always tell... if its incorrect, there is "red" text telling u so...
    if its just asking for verification, there is no red text.
