Apple’s iOS 16 has a new feature called “Safety Check”. This is intended to help women who are in abusive relationships and who want to remove shared access with their husband. It disables location sharing, resets privacy settings, and secures their messages. There’s no doubt that blocking the location-sharing option is especially critical for women trying to get out of abusive situations. This can be a useful feature for a person who is a victim of abuse or domestic violence.
Safety Check can help users manage app access and passwords, as well as inform them about who has access to their passwords and information. It will make it easier for people in abusive situations to end connections with an abusive spouse across devices. They can do this by reviewing and removing access for specific people. Find my, location, data, contacts and other applications are included. You can also use the Disaster Recovery feature, which resets access for all users and applications on all devices synced to your iCloud account at the same time. You can also use this feature to check your security settings. This could indeed be a good step towards people who suffer from this.
