How to Protect iPhone Against App Thieves

The iPhone is the most expensive consumer mobile phone available and holds personal information of tremendous value to criminals. A recent Wall Street Journal report reveals that hackers are watching users enter their passcodes onto the device, learning how to figure out the code. This information can be used to reset the password on Apple ID and gain access to all of the data of users stored in iCloud. Apple is working on updating its software to stop these tactics. Meanwhile, there are several ways that anyone can take to safeguard their iPhone from app thieving.

Create a secure password. Make it as difficult to guess as is possible regardless of whether you’re using Face ID, Touch ID or a four-digit numeric code. This is the first step to protecting against a thief’s access to your iPhone and personal data.

Next, review all of the apps that have access to your location services, camera, microphone and other features on your iPhone. If you observe any suspicious activity (for instance, an app asking for access to your camera or contacts list) Remove these permissions immediately. Turn on two-factor authentication in the Settings application and all apps which support it. This will prevent thieves from hacking into your iCloud account and downloading your personal information from the cloud.

A trusted security software will provide a comprehensive security for your iPhone. Mobile Security by Trend Micro is one example. It analyzes Internet activity to identify malicious websites, adware and safeguards your iPhone against identity theft on social media platforms such as Instagram. The app also protects your privacy and provides ad blocking capabilities for the most secure protection. F-Secure SAFE is a top option for a secure iOS environment. The app provides a comprehensive range of security features, including a private vault to store up to 40 private photos as well as a password breach alert which will inform you the password to your email has been exposed.
