Apple has provided a preview of the iOS mobile operating system, which has a pretty interesting change on the Privacy icon.
The preview of iOS 11.3 has been provided by Apple developers, with a long list of new features. But one thing that Apple did not mention in the list is the new Privacy icon discovered by developer Dean Murphy in iOS 11.3 beta.

iOS 11.3 beta is currently being offered to developer members.

According to information found in the beta, the Privacy icon will appear on your device when an application or feature from Apple creates a request for the use of your personal information, including your Apple ID password. Currently, it is not clear exactly where this icon will appear, but it will probably show up in the top menu bar.
The Privacy icon is considered necessary to make it more difficult for fraudsters to steal your Apple ID password and personal data.
It was reported last year that another developer, Felix Krause, demonstrated that an application or web page that could contain pop-ups like Apple requires the provision of an Apple ID, which confuses the user. Genuine pop-ups. The new Privacy icon is displayed so it is believed that this is officially a pop-up from Apple.

The Privacy icon will help protect your Apple ID account better.

In addition the new Privacy icon will be available on MacOS High Sierra and the tvOS, so it will protect a variety of Apple devices. iOS 11.3 is currently only available as a beta to developers. Users will typically start installing it on their device in the coming months.

Wow that is actually so cool. So anytime you enter any part of the phone that either contains personal information and is used to buy things online, you are asked for your Apple ID? That is amazing, definitely is going to help a LOT of people.

Considering how many people lose their phones each year, this is perfect. I can't imagine how bad it would suck if you lost your phone, someone took a hold of it and wasted all your money or abused your private info.

Nevertheless, great post, very well explained, thanks for the great information, friend :)
