As we work to secure our data and communications from hackers, we must recognize that our citizens face a far broader array of threats. — William Barr
Have there been times you were unable to access your iPhone? If so, did you receive messages of incorrect passcode when you knew without a doubt it was correct? What about receiving Security Lockout after multiple failed attempts? Security Lockout is an additional Apple security feature to protect devices from unauthorized use.
My iPhone went into security lockout and the service provider could not legally help me but referred me to an Apple store affiliate. When I arrived, I handed my iPhone to the representative who immediately took it to her manager. She returned with good news and bad news that they do not have legal authority to help me.
The good news was to call Apple who had legal authority to get inside my iPhone. I provided Apple representative with all information on the purchase receipt and answered questions and signed in with my apple ID using my laptop. After she was 100% satisfied that I purchased and owned the iPhone, she proceeded.
Once access was regained while working with the representative, my options were to restore from the last backup or return to factory setting. I chose to restore from the last backup and the representative was done with her part. However, I was unable to open my apps, so my husband did a factory reset for me to redownload them since the restore apps were not all the updated versions.
I was frustrated but came to my senses to see this experience from a spiritual perspective of God allowing mankind the knowledge to stop hackers in their tracks from exposing and using my personal data. Yes, Satan and his evil children are hard at work against our devices, but Norton and Apple worked harder to shut them down.
Everything is new on my iPhone. This experience reminded me how old things should pass away in our lives and all things are new in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Hackers are demons of Satan who work hard to hack our minds from Christ. Apple and Norton have their multiple security features in place, but nothing matches the ONE security feature, the blood of Jesus, that God put in place to get us from earth to glory.
Our worse threat is Satan influencing us to sin against God to lose our salvation. However, God made a way of escape, so we are without excuse. When approached by demonic hackers we must walk away saying devil you have been blocked by the blood of Jesus. (I Corinthians 10:13 and Matthew 26:28)
