NEW privacy features can help iPhone users escape from abusive relationships.
Apple just announced a bunch of new privacy and personal security features at its annual WWDC event.
The new tools fall under “Security Check” in Settings and let iPhone users quickly check who can see their location.
Within the tool there are customizable sharing and access settings, as well as an emergency button that can be used to reset any permissions you may have given someone.
Messages, app access, location tracking and others are included in this “access reset”.
Apple created the tool to combat online stalking and help people end abusive relationships more easily.
The tech giant worked closely with the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), the National Center for Victims of Crime (NCVC) and the Women’s Services Network (WESNET) to develop the tools.
What is the Apple WWDC 2022?
WWDC is Apple’s annual developer conference where app makers gather in large numbers.
Apple also uses the event to make important announcements about its products.
The event usually attracts thousands of visitors, but in 2020 WWDC was purely virtual for the first time.
Last year’s WWDC event followed with an online-only experience.
