How to Protect iPhone Against App Thieves

The iPhone is among the most expensive mobile phones available, and the personal data it contains is extremely valuable to criminals. According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, hackers are watching as users type in their passcodes, discovering how they can guess the code. The information could also be used to reset a password on an Apple ID or access all the data stored in iCloud. Apple is working on updates to block these methods. Meanwhile, there are several ways that anyone can take to safeguard their iPhone from app thieves.

Begin by creating a secure passcode. Regardless of whether you use Touch ID, Face ID or the four-digit numeric code, make it impossible to guess. This is the first step in preventing a thief from accessing your iPhone as well as your personal information.

Next, review all of the apps that have access to your location services, camera, and other features on your iPhone. If you find any suspicious behavior (for example an app that asks for your camera or contact list) take those permissions off immediately. Set up two-factor authentication in the Settings application and all apps which allow it. This will stop thieves from hacking into your iCloud and downloading your personal information from the cloud.

A trusted security application can provide complete protection for your iPhone. Trend Micro’s free application Mobile Security, for example it analyzes Internet behaviour to detect harmful websites and adware as well being able to protect your iPhone from identity theft on social media sites such as Instagram. It provides the best security by securing your privacy and preventing ads. F-Secure SAFE is an excellent option for securing your iOS environment. The app comes with a complete security suite that includes vaults for up 40 photos, as well as a password leak alert which will notify you in the event that your email password is exposed.
