The iPhone is one of the most expensive mobile phones on the market, and the personal data it contains is extremely valuable to thieves. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal article, hackers are watching as users enter their passcodes and learning how they can guess the code. This information could be used to reset the password on Apple ID and gain access to all the data of a user stored in iCloud. Apple is currently working on updates to stop these methods. There are several ways that you can secure your iPhone from app thieving.

Start by setting a strong passcode. Make it as difficult to guess as is possible, regardless of whether you’re using Face ID, Touch ID or a 4-digit numeric code. This is the first step in preventing a thief from accessing your iPhone as well as your personal information.

Then, you should review all the apps that have access to your location services, camera, and other features on your iPhone. If you notice any suspicious behavior (for instance an app asking for your camera or contacts list), remove those permissions immediately. Finally, turn on two-factor authentication in the Settings app as well as in any apps that allow it. This will prevent a thief from gaining access to your iCloud account and downloading your personal data from the cloud.

A reputable security app can provide a broad range of complete security for your iPhone. Trend Micro’s free app Mobile Security, for example, analyzes Internet behavior to identify harmful websites and adware aswell in protecting your iPhone from identity theft on social media sites like Instagram. The app also protects your privacy and offers advertising blocking capabilities to provide the most reliable security. F-Secure’s Safe is another excellent choice for a secure iOS experience. The app comes with a complete security suite, with a vault for up to 40 photos, as well as a leak alert that will notify you if your email password has been leaked.
