Seahawks stun Denver Broncos in Russell Wilson’s return to Seattle

Russell Wilson’s return to Lumen Field was inevitable, how could it not be? How could a Super Bowl champion quarterback’s reunion with the only team he had ever known not come to a spectacular conclusion?

Wilson orchestrated so much late-game magic over the course of 157 starts and 10 seasons; how could it not have been for Pete Carroll and the boisterous Seattle crowd, who for the first time had to play defence?

Many in the stadium, regardless of sideline, jersey colour, or loyalty, must have thought Wilson was going to write another fairytale ending, this time as the antagonist rather than the hero, as he led the Broncos to a pair of third-down conversions and out to midfield late in the fourth quarter.

How the New Safety Features in iOS 16 by Apple Work

How to Turn Lockdown Mode On

Lockdown is quite simple to activate. Choose Lockdown Mode from the Privacy and Security menu under Settings on your iPhone. That much is obvious.

How It Works

Lockdown restricts the usage of any vector that has historically been used to distribute malware, as the name implies. In iMessage, Lockdown prevents the majority of attachment types (which are commonly used for cyberattacks). Additionally, it obstructs wired connections to computers or other devices and limits incoming invitations or requests (like FaceTime invites) if the user hasn’t planned them with you in advance. The announcement gives the example of just-in-time (JIT) JavaScript compilation to illustrate how different types of code are occasionally prohibited from running on the device.

In other words, it essentially turns your phone into a moated fortress to which only individuals you know have access. This is advantageous if you want to protect yourself, but it also means that iOS won’t function as well as it usually does. In fact, activating this mode may substantially impair device operation.

The good news is that 99.9% of iPhone owners will never require it. Lockdown was created especially for users who risk being tracked by commercial spyware (think: journalists, diplomats, activists, etc). If you’re wondering whether you qualify, you probably don’t. When Apple first introduced the feature, they emphasised that it was regarded as a “extreme, optional level of protection for the very few.” It’s still a fantastic function to have, and it’s wonderful that Apple decided to make access available to everyone.

Consider Other New Safety Features

Safety Check is a new security tool that is worth taking a look at. This function, like Lockdown, was created to safeguard a select group of iPhone users who are exposed to dangerous circumstances, in particular victims of violent relationships and domestic abuse.

Remote monitoring software is routinely used by stalkers and abusive partners to track or monitor their victims. A user can evaluate and revoke access to their device with Safety Check, which was created in partnership with several victim support organisations. This effectively blocks any person or app that might be improperly accessing the user’s data. In the event that their settings have been changed externally or they are under surveillance, users can reset their passwords and passcodes, stop sharing their location and other information with others, and generally recover control over their device.

The Safety Check feature “allows people in abusive situations to rapidly withdraw an abuser’s access to their data and location, enabling them to cut links and get to safety,” said Katie Skinner, privacy engineering manager at Apple, during the tool’s debut in June.

Although there are multiple steps involved, turning on Safety Check is rather simple. Start by selecting Settings, followed by Privacy & Security. From there, select Safety Check by scrolling down. You might choose to click Emergency Reset or Manage Sharing & Access after that.
