“Dangerous” (and I interpret the term very loosely) to her, maybe. But the average user may not want to know such details. The bottom line is that the device should work with minimal “overhead” required (user intervention). I think Apple does this better than anyone right now.

This goes back to the “Limit my options and therefore risk” vs. “unlimited options and risk” choice (iOS vs. Android phones). It’s good to have choice; one is not universally “better” than another.
