How to Protect iPhone Against App Thieves

The iPhone is among the most expensive mobile phones available, and the personal data it stores is highly valuable to criminals. A recent Wall Street Journal report reveals that hackers are watching users enter their passcodes onto the device and figuring out how to figure out the code. This information could be used to reset the password on Apple ID and gain access to all of a user’s data stored in iCloud. Apple is currently working on updates to block these techniques. Meanwhile, there are several ways that anyone can take to protect their iPhone from app thieving.

Begin by creating a secure passcode. Make it as difficult to guess as it is regardless of whether you are using Face ID, Touch ID or a four-digit numeric code. This is the first step towards preventing a thief from accessing your iPhone and your personal data.

Examine all apps that allow you to access your location services, camera and microphone on your iPhone. If you observe any suspicious behaviour (for instance, an app asking for access to your camera or contacts list) Remove these permissions immediately. Also, enable two factor authentication in the Settings app as well as in any apps that support it. This will stop a burglar from hacking into your iCloud account and downloading your personal data from the cloud.

A trusted security application can provide a wide range of complete security for your iPhone. Trend Micro’s free app Mobile Security, for example, analyzes Internet behaviour to detect harmful websites and adware as well safeguarding your iPhone from identity theft on social media platforms like Instagram. The app also protects your privacy, and has ad blocking capabilities for the most reliable protection. F-Secure SAFE is a top choice for a secure iOS environment. The app provides a comprehensive range of security features, including a vault that can be used to store up to 40 photos of private content and a password breach alert that will notify you whether your email password has been exposed.
