Last Updated on November 29, 2020© pixabay iPhones have long been compared to Android phones in terms of security. In fact, there is no denying that, more often than not, iPhones beat Android devices in terms of security features. The general consensus in the tech world seems to be that an iPhone device, such as an iPhone X, an iPhone XR, an iPhone 7, or the newest iPhone 11, is more secure than its Android counterpart. However, is there something more that we can do to make iPhones, especially new iPhones, more secure than they are. Well, as a matter of fact, indeed we can do that! In this article, we are going to tell you how you can turn the Apple iPhone device that you currently have into a security beast. Therefore, if you have an iPhone 11 Pro Max, a regular iPhone 11 Pro, an iPhone 8 Plus, an iPhone 8, or even an old iPhone 6s, you can rest assured that device will be secure. We urge you, therefore, that you read the entire article to take your iPhone security to the next level.
1. Prevent Theft
One of the most important things you need to do if you own an iPhone, or any phone for that matter, is to guard it against theft. To do that you need obviously to keep it close to you at all times. Moreover, if you don’t want someone to know that you have an iPhone 11, for example, make sure that you do not wear your earbuds in suspicious neighborhoods. Also, if you want to keep your iPhone X or newly bought iPhone 11 Pro from being stolen, you need to always be aware of your surroundings and not allow your self to feel safe and at ease in an area where you should not feel that way. Be careful!
2. Create a Passcode
It is important that you turn your new iPhone device into a password-protected iPhone as soon as you buy it. This is a universal iPhone security feature that is present across all iPhones—you will find it among iPhone 11 features and iPhone 8 features alike. Therefore, make sure that you create a strong password that will not allow anyone to get access to your iPhone in case of theft. If you do not create the passcode and your iPhone 11 Pro or regular iPhone 11 happens to get stolen, you can do so through the ‘Find My iPhone’ option, provided of course that you have it set up on your iPhone.
