Beware of fake popups asking for passwords on iPhone and iPad

Beware of fake popup messages asking for passwords on your iPhone.

“iOS users can protect themselves by doing the following when they encounter a password popup: hit the home button. If the app and password prompt close, the prompt was likely a phishing attempt. If the dialog and app remain visible, the dialog was generated by iOS.”   As recommend by Arstechnica
