The iPhone is the most expensive consumer mobile phone available and holds personal information that are valuable to criminals. A recent Wall Street Journal report reveals that hackers are watching users enter their passcodes on the device and figuring out how to determine the code. The information could also be used to reset passwords on Apple ID or gain access to all the information stored in iCloud. Apple is working on updates to thwart these techniques. There are several ways you can protect your iPhone from hackers who steal apps.
Create a strong password. Make it as difficult to guess as it is, regardless of whether you are using Face ID, Touch ID or a numeric code with four numbers. This is the first step towards stopping a burglar from accessing your iPhone and personal information.
Then, look through all the apps that have access to your location services, camera, and other features on your iPhone. If you notice any suspicious behavior (for example, an app asking for your camera or contact list) remove the permissions immediately. Then, you can enable two factor authentication in the Settings app, as well as any other apps that allow it. This will stop thieves from hacking into your iCloud and downloading your personal information from the cloud.
A trusted security application can offer a variety of protections that go from beginning to end 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 like Instagram. The app also protects your privacy and provides advertising blocking capabilities to provide the most reliable security. F-Secure SAFE is an excellent option for a secure iOS environment. The app comes with a complete security suite, which includes a vault for up to 40 photos, as well as a leak alert that will notify you if your email password gets leaked.
