iOS 16 will have a new Safety Check feature in iOS 16 that will allow users to check who has access to their passwords and apps and reset them at any time. This was announced by Apple at the WWDC 2022.

Being able to control access to programs and passwords and find out who else has access to them will help people in abusive relationships break up with their partners more easily. They will be able to see who has access to their applications and information and cancel it if necessary. In particular, this applies to the application Find Me, location, data, contacts.

Also, victims of abuse will be able to use the Emergency Reset feature, which will instantly deny access to all people and applications on all devices synced to your iCloud account. You can use this feature to view your privacy settings.

Apple is increasingly addressing privacy issues with its devices. However, the company’s products, especially AirTags, can still be used for criminal purposes. We remind that in the United States, former partners stalked women using AirTags.
