How to Protect iPhone Against App Thieves

The iPhone is one of the most expensive mobile phones available and the personal information it stores is extremely valuable to criminals. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal article, hackers are watching as users type in their passcodes, trying to figure out the code. This information can be used to reset the password on Apple ID and gain access to all of the user’s information stored in iCloud. Apple is said to be working on updates to thwart these methods. There are several ways that you can protect your iPhone from hackers who steal apps.

Make sure you have a secure password. Regardless of whether you use Touch ID, Face ID or the 4-digit numeric code, make it as difficult as it is to guess. This is the first step in making sure that a thief is not able to gain access to your iPhone and personal information.

Examine all apps that allow you to access your location services including camera and microphone on your iPhone. If you find any suspicious behavior (for instance, an app asking for your camera or contacts list), remove those permissions immediately. Set up two-factor authentication in the Settings application as well as any other apps which allow it. This will prevent a thief 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 end-to-end safeguards for your iPhone. Trend Micro’s app for free Mobile Security, for example analyzes Internet behavior to identify harmful websites and adware, as well as protecting your iPhone from identity theft on social media sites such as Instagram. The app provides the best security by protecting your privacy and blocking ads. F-Secure’s Safe is another excellent option for a secure iOS experience. It comes with a broad set of security features including a vault that can be used that can store up to 40 private photos and a password breach alert that will let you know that your email password has been exposed.
