well siri is about protect you against these hunters too.
if you ever get pulled over,
she is about to come through with the receipts.
this is what i read from “usa today”…
Just say, “Hey Siri, I’m getting pulled over.”
One of the latest apps to hit the iOS 12 mobile highway is Shortcuts. With it, users can plot out a series of actions and trigger them by signaling the voice-assistant. One savvy user created an add-on calledPolicethat can give drivers added security during traffic stops.
The brainchild of Redditer Robert Petersen of Arizona, Police was created to covertly record law enforcement officials to “keep everyone safe and honest.”
“I have noticed in reading news articles and seeing reports on TV that in many cases you end up with police saying one thing happened and the citizen being pulled over saying another,” Petersen said to USA TODAY. “And how do you determine truth? Sometimes the police have body cams, sometimes not, and even when they do it’s not always released in a timely manner.”
How does the shortcut work?
Once Siri is alerted about the traffic stop, the program springs into action to:
pause any music that may be playing,
turn down your screen brightness
and puts your phone in Do Not Disturb mode.
Siri then sends a text message to a designated emergency contact to let them know what’s happening.
The front camera turns on to record video of the occurrence.
“When dealing with being pulled over and interacting with law enforcement, you want as little distraction as possible, and that includes music, bright screens and notifications coming in,” Petersen said. “You want to be focused on the encounter at hand and don’t want any unnecessary distraction to yourself or to law enforcement personnel.”
Once users stop the recording, a copy of the video is sent to a specified contact, the brightness returns to normal, and Do Not Disturb is disabled, Petersen said.
*hey siri play “GOT EMMMMMM”*
i think this feature is brilliant.
you don’t even need to touch your phone now.
none of that “reaching for a weapon” shit.
i’m all about being safe in 2018.
i love to share anything that will help the foxhole.
this is so important to know.
the way these hunters are set up,
you never know what you gonna get these days.
i hope they can incorporate this feature on all phones.
even though i’m not too tough on androids,
everyone needs this feature.
kudos to apple.
i’ll allow it.
lowkey: use that feature if they harass you on the street.
