How to Protect iPhone Against Apps

Apple is known for setting high standards in user privacy and data security however, iPhones aren’t protected from hackers. Criminals are able to access sensitive information through the numerous iPhone applications that collect it on a regular basis — such as browsing history, personal images as well as current location and passwords.

You can shield your iPhone from apps by using a strong password that you can remember and do not write down anywhere (you should already be doing this). Another good idea is to disable the ability to display notification content on the lock screen, which can stop anyone from gleaning personal info without unlocking your phone.

If you’d like to take things further, you can use the Screen Time feature to create a unique alphanumeric passcode or block access to your 4-digit numeric passcode. This will make it more difficult for a burglar to brute the passcode. You can also turn on a function that will delete all information from your iPhone after 10 unsuccessful passcode attempts. This makes your iPhone unusable to thieves, however, it could still be inaccessible to you if are unable to access your iCloud photos or other content.

Consider installing a mobile security program that you trust, like Clario. It can warn you of malicious websites and protect your identity from stealing on Instagram and social media blocking annoying ads and potentially dangerous ones, boost your privacy using a VPN and much more.
