Instagram introduces ‘sensitive content’ controls
At the end of last year, Instagram added a way by which users can easily filter out sensitive content that they don’t want to see. Now, the same filters are getting a big upgrade. Instagram has announced that it is expanding the setting by enabling the users to turn off such types of content recommendations throughout the app.
Earlier, the platform only used to define the sensitive content as “posts that don’t necessarily break our rules but could potentially be upsetting to some people — such as posts that may be sexually suggestive or violent.” However, the new settings will be applied all over the app, the reels, hashtag pages, in-feed suggested posts and even the accounts you might follow. Rather than letting users mute certain content topics, Instagram’s controls only have three settings, one that shows you less of this bucket of content, the standard-setting and an option to see more sensitive content. Instagram users under the age of 18 won’t be able to opt for the latter setting. There’s no date announced for this upcoming functionality, but it will be available to the users in the coming week.

Apple bringing New Passkey Feature
Apple’s ongoing WWDC 2022 has already unveiled the company’s latest upgrades and technologies coming in the future. Keeping with the same, iOS 16, iPadOS 16, tvOS 16, and macOS Ventura is soon to introduce the “Passkeys” feature to replace the traditional passwords. The same will help the users to sign in to any website or app without typing their long passwords.
According to Apple, “Passkeys are next-generation credentials that are safer and easier to use than standard passwords”. As Apple explains in a support document on the feature, “Passkeys are built on the WebAuthn standard and use a unique cryptographic key pair for each website or account”. It is considered even more secure than passwords as they protect users from phishing, malware, and other attacks aimed at gaining account access. The whole Passkey concept relies on the iCloud Keychain, which in turn requires two-factor authentication for further protection. Apple says that transitioning away from passwords is going to take some time, but it will be working with developers to create a passwordless future.
