    So instead of forcing someone to use your fingerprint to unlock your phone, they're going to instead force you to put the passcode in.

    • Jeffrey Doyle
      Jeffrey Doyle 4 months ago +43

      Yeah, Rubber Hose cryptography. Just beat the guy until he gives you the encryption key.
      But still, it's much easier to force someone to look at the camera or to force their thumb on the screen, no matter how hard they're fighting you. But to make someone give you a passcode is not as guaranteed.
      (There should be the option to have a panic code. A second passcode that calls emergency services, or deletes all the data on the phone, whenever used)

    • Yung Azn
      Yung Azn 4 months ago +10

      @Jeffrey Doyletechnically iOS has that… wrong code x amount of times…. Phones wiped

    • Jeffrey Doyle
      Jeffrey Doyle 4 months ago +14

      @Yung Azn yeah, that's fairly close. It serves the same purpose in most cases, except if you're held against your will. You still have to give your kidnappers multiple wrong codes (probably with escalating torture) before your data is safe, instead of a single wipe code.
      Cheers, I had totally forgot about that feature!

      Magnus Celes Good catch. I reversed Google Searched it, and it's actually a MAP Flag with an icon of a Wood Chipper on top of it. So I believe it's a message that I agree with.

      They may not be allowed to if it's the police or something. Codes and biometric data is protected differently by law in many countries.

  • Anthony Pinto
    Anthony Pinto 4 months ago +193

    Another bit of trivia. A warrant can compel you to use biometrics you unlock your device. However, due to the 5th amendment a warrant cannot compel you to use your pin to unlock your phone. The 5th amendment protects what you know, not who you are from being used against you. In short, if you are ever arrested, always do this to disable biometrics to prevent your phone from being searched even with a warrant.

      @coopachew i dont think iPhones can be unlocked that easily… or maybe I’m just biased, but doesnt Apple’s closed Ecosystem prevent their devices from being breached from outside systems easily?

    • Henry Jr. Watsson
      Henry Jr. Watsson 4 months ago +1

      ​@Mark Albarracin if a pin was set as an alternative unlocking method, usually takes a few hours to crack it open. iPhones are not closed off. Plug it in, dump bits of the software and viola.

    • Mark Albarracin
      Mark Albarracin 4 months ago +6

      @Henry Jr. Watsson yeah, of course if someone tried hard enough you’d be able to breach it, but in this context where the police do it, i dont think that’s legal, especially with how tampering with the software closes so many doors for your Phone as per terms and conditions violations, which the police will be liable for breaking them

  • Jim Rice
    Jim Rice 4 months ago +425

    There’s actually an app called Parachute that once it’s activated turns on both front and back cameras, 360 degree Omni mic, sends text and voice messages to preconfigured numbers, and broadcasts your GPS location. The screen is locked and blacked out. Location, audio, and video are continuously broadcast for real-time and historical tracking. If battery dies it will come back broadcasting once power is reapplied. Same if no signal. Will just record until signal then upload everything.

    • ToniDamnation
      ToniDamnation 4 months ago +30

    • bulldogg117
      bulldogg117 4 months ago +6

      It isn't just service from your carrier that can be tracked on a phone. wireless signals, including cellular, GPS, RFID/NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi, wireless, EMF radiation, electromagnetic pulse (EMP), and solar flares all can be tracked. Additionally the feature on the iPhone doesn't block half of these. A decent Faraday bag will. I'd recommend go dark.

      What is this comment💀
      To transfer the data it needs networking capabilities which it does not have when it’s dead. It communicated to other apple devices in the find my network to figure out the location. This is the same way AirTags work and that’s why AirTags use very little battery. If it “listens to you” then your battery would only last for a few minutes, not weeks. The o my way it lasts weeks is by rationing the battery power by communicating to other iOS devices by asking it where I am and the other iOS device will send that info to find my.

  • Isak s
    Isak s 4 months ago +47

    We have a weird law about phones here in Sweden where this feature would be useful.
    Police are not allowed to force someone to input their pass code to unlock their phone, but they can forcefully open your phone with biometrics.
    So just disable the biometrics briefly and the men in blue can't access your phone.
    Or just do what I did, which is registering the head of my penis as my 'finger print' which means that if I ever accidentally end up in trouble so the po po wants what's in my phone, would they have to force themselves onto my nether regions which in turn would mean that they just made themselves guilty for some sexual assault.

      Use one of your toes for finger print, they’ll never guess that! 😂 Also if they have your phone and try to unlock it by pointing it at you, close your eyes and say”Hey Siri, who’s iphone is this?” (Even if ‘hey siri’ is disabled) The phone will disable face id and passcode will have to be entered.

  • Chorley at Chorley Bunce Film & TV Catering

    One of the most major security flaws of the iPhone is the passcode if someone obtains your passcode it is a gateway to everything.
    If you ever forced to open your phone against your will use any other way than the passcode !
    Once your passcode is compromised the user can change the Face ID. Once the Face ID is compromised the user can gain easy access to the Apps that use Face ID like banking apps.
    If the SIM in the phone has not been blocked the user can receive the SMS that is often sent as a secondary security measure. Street thieves watch for people entering the passcode into there iPhone, using reflective surfaces around them to obtain this information.
    It’s not really about intelligence, dolphins are intelligent it’s about awareness and how Apple know this is a fundamental flaw in the iPhone, but do nothing about it.

He then remotely turned her phone on and sent her a text. He also says there's another device nearby and identified it's owner and sent him a text as well saying (she's only 16). Within 15 mins he kicked her out of his car in front of her house and sped away. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it.

    Um, if they force you to unlock your phone, they can force you to enter your pass code. Reseting fingerprints and face ID is only useful if you've died!

    “Might be useful if somebody forces you to unlock your phone” Yeah if Face ID is disabled they’re just gonna force me to enter the password? 😂

    If someone force you then it’s a good idea that the phone gets unlocked , what if they have a weapon and threaten to hurt you

    The 1st feature is super valuable because cops can legally force you to unlock your phone if you have Face ID or fingerprint enabled but they legally can’t make input your passcode.

    Even if you press the power button and the slide power off will appear and you cancel the shutdown mode it will automatically lock your phone and passcode will be required

    I knew both of these things. If someone takes your phone and you're worried they're going to use your biometics to force you to unlock it, you can tell siri to lock your phone and require the passcode. :)

    I have been receiving an SOS message saying I'm their emergency contact with their location from a totally random number. I get about 15 notifications a day. I have called the number and text to let them know but haven't received a response. So I blocked the number. Guess what? I get the same thing from another number in the same area. It's so odd.

    Never use fingerprint or face ID!! Authorities can legally compel you to use your face and fingerprint to open your phone. But cannot compel you to use your password!!

    Never use prints or face to unlock your phone, always use a pass code! The law can force ably use your print or face to access your phone but they cannot force you to divulge your passcode! That’s the law!

      It’s so you can find a lost device even if it’s off. I get people don’t like it, but it’s a specific hardware chip you have to be close to for it to even show where your phone’s at.

    Samsung has a feature just like this in OneUI. Lockdown mode.
    If you go to the side key settings you can enable it to show in the power off menu.
    What it does is quite simple:
    -Locks your phone
    -Locks biometrics
    -Locks notifications
    Very handy

    You can also activate this screen by pressing the power button 5 times. I find this easier to remember as a “panic” mode if law enforcement or TSA come for your phone.

    Police can demand you open your phone with face ID or fingerprint, however they cannot have you open your phone with your passcode as this goes against the 5th amendment of self incrimination. Great advice for keeping citizens safe from tyrannical cops
