The iPhone is the most expensive mobile phone on the market and is a repository of personal information that are valuable to thieves. A recent Wall Street Journal report reveals that hackers are monitoring users as they enter their passwords on the device, learning how to figure out the code. This information could be used to reset the password on Apple ID and gain access to all the data of a user in iCloud. Apple is currently working on upgrading its software to fight these methods. There are a variety of ways you can secure your iPhone from snatchers of apps.
Start by setting a strong passcode. Make it as difficult to guess as possible regardless of whether you’re using Face ID, Touch ID or a numeric code with four numbers. This is the first step towards making sure that thieves are not able to access your iPhone and personal information.
Then, go through all the apps that have access to your location services, camera, microphone and other features on your iPhone. If you observe any suspicious activity (for example an app asking for access to your contacts list or camera), remove these permissions immediately. Set up two-factor authentication in the Settings application, and in any other apps that support it. This will prevent thieves from gaining access to your iCloud account and downloading your personal information from the cloud.
A trusted security application can provide a broad range of security features that cover the entire iPhone. Mobile Security by Trend Micro for instance, analyses Internet activity to detect malicious websites, adware, and safeguards your iPhone against identity theft on social media platforms such as Instagram. It provides the best security by securing your privacy and preventing ads. F-Secure SAFE is an excellent choice for a secure iOS environment. The app offers a full range of security features, which include a private vault that allows you which can be used to store upto 40 photos of private content and a password breach alert that informs you that your email password has been leaked.
