Apple devices to get an advanced 'Lockdown Mode' for spyware protection: Connected Church News

Apple has announced a release of an important feature in its upcoming operating system, where you will have a mode called Lockdown Mode that lets you almost shut your device down to cyber-attack and spyware attacks, there by protecting you. This, as per Apple statement, is an ‘extreme’ level of security. That’s the word used by Apple. It says “…It’s an extreme optional protection that should only be used if you believe you may be personally targeted by highly sophisticated cyber attack”. So it’s not for everyone. It’s for high-profile people who are being attacked in a certain way, by certain spyware. But having said that, it can be activated by anyone. I know that you, as a nonprofit leader, a church or a ministry leader, could be interested in protecting yourself against certain types of attacks. So, do take a look at this news, and when it gets released in the future, have a look at how it might suit your requirement.
