How to Protect iPhone Against Apps

Apple is renowned for its high standards of privacy and data protection, but iPhones are still a target for hackers. Criminals can steal sensitive information by stealing it from the iPhone apps that collect the data on a regular basis. This includes browsing history, passwords, images, and the current location.

The most effective way to safeguard your iPhone against malware is to use a strong passcode- one that you can actually remember and don’t note down anywhere (you should be doing this anyway). Another good idea is to disable the ability to display notifications content on the lock screen, which prevents strangers from gaining personal information without unlocking your phone.

If you want to take things a step further, make sure you are using the Screen Time passcode feature that allows you to set up an alphanumeric passcode that is unique to you, or at a minimum, disable access to the four-digit numeric code which makes it more difficult for thieves to force your passcode until they get it right. You can also set the feature to erase all data on your iPhone after 10 incorrect passcode attempts, which will render your device inaccessible to thieves — but it could be useless for you if you’re not able to access your iCloud images or other content.

Finally, consider installing a reliable mobile security application like Clario. It can alert you of malicious sites, protect you from identity theft on Instagram and other social media platforms, block potentially harmful and annoying ads, increase your privacy by using VPN, increase your privacy with VPN and much more.
