iPhone users often forget that the iPhone is vulnerable to cybersecurity threats, not to mention theft. Once your phone has been compromised or lost, your data may be gone forever, too.


Don’t forget the security basics: To increase your iPhone’s security, be sure to set unique, hard-to-guess passwords to different apps and sites. Be sure to use the PIN on your home screen — it’s your first opportunity for defense. Back up the data stored on your phone, including photos, contact information and documents, so that if your phone is lost or stolen, your data isn’t gone with it. And routinely update your iPhone with all new OS patches.

Be sure to only download apps from trusted sources. Read up on the reviews and check the link to the company website to be sure of its legitimacy. With that in mind, check out these six apps that provide additional security features for your iPhone.
