We all know very well that the tech giant Apple has been able to avoid all the control and access measures that governments have been trying to impose on it. Hence, recently, it introduced a new feature that helps its users to quickly disable the TouchID and keep cops out.
This New iOS 11 Feature Let You Kill The TouchID And Keep Cops Out
The tech giant Apple has been able to avoid all the control and access measures that governments have been trying to impose on it. While doing so, it has sought to strengthen the security measures it gives users, ensuring even more privacy.
A new feature, now discovered in iOS 11, comes with yet another layer of security. The Touch ID can be locked in seconds, forcing the use of a password to unlock an iPhone or iPad.
The new feature is built into a recent enhancement that iOS 11 will bring. As the tech giant Apple had previously reported, that iOS 11 now has an emergency mode, which allows anyone to use an iPhone to call emergency numbers or view user-friendly data.
One of the latest beta versions of the tech giant Apple’s mobile operating system, of course, iOS has brought the novelty of locking the Touch ID whenever this mode is activated, ensuring that the user can not access the user’s data and can only use it to contact the emergency numbers.
In order to bring back the Touch ID, the password defined by the user must be used, which requires the user to do so conscientiously, avoiding the unlocking with the fingerprint forced or unaware.

Until now, and in the latest versions of iOS, to disable the Touch ID, the user had to do so in the settings or successively fail to authenticate his/her fingerprint. With this new mode, it is simple to activate this protection by simply pressing the power button five times.
Of course, the main idea of this mode is not the Touch ID lock, but the resulting “side effects” turn out to be a protective measure for all those who anticipate they will have to lock their device or have to unblock them against your will.
This is just one of the many new features that iOS 11 will bring and soon everyone will be able to discover and test it. The maturity of the released beta shows that it is practically ready to be released.
