    iPhone 6 – Apple Pay

    Apple Pay and Find My iPhone make life easier. One lets you use your phone to pay for purchases. The other helps you locate your phone when it's misplaced. Unfortunately, they also open your data to potential exposure.

    Tips: Start by using only one credit card — never debit cards — to mitigate risk if there is an issue. Use two-factor authentication to keep your personal information secure online.
