While iPhone hacks are not as prevalent as they were in the past and Apple gadgets tend to end up being safer than Android phones, it’s necessary to take steps to protect your phone against apps. Cyber criminals can reveal everything from privately owned photos to financial details and security passwords. Here are some solutions to make your iPhone less of a target.
The first thing you can do is use an Continued alphanumeric passcode—the combination of numbers and letters makes it hard for hackers to guess. You should also enable the Guided Access feature, which allows you to lock your iPhone down to specific apps so that the thief would have to enter an additional password to change your Apple ID or even see notifications on the screen. To do this, tap Settings > Passcode and set a six-digit passcode (or switch on Face IDENTIFICATION or Contact ID intended for biometric security).
If you don’t want to bother with adding one more password to your iPhone, you will find free pass word manager apps that can help you create a strong, unique pass word for each app. And don’t forget to set-off two-factor authentication for your iCloud bank account.
It’s also a good idea in order to avoid using people Wi-Fi systems and always maintain your iPhone faraway from publicly available chargers. A hacker could grab your iCloud login details if they gain access to the unsecured network, then work with that to download apps and view personal data on your own iPhone. If you must use a public charger, consider delivering your unique portable battery pack and staying away from the “shared” charging feature.
