While Apple hasn’t yet enabled any fully functional antivirus apps for the iPhone, according to Jeff Goldman, writing for eSecurity Planet, there are several essential steps every iPhone user should take to make their device as secure as possible. (First and foremost, it’s crucial to set the device to auto-lock after a specified period of time, and to require a passcode to unlock it; both can be accessed within Settings -> General.)
A wide range of other functionality, such as managing your passwords on the device, or implementing additional protection for sensitive files, requires the installation of third-party apps. With hundreds of thousands of iPhone applications available in the App Store, it can be a challenge to find the right solution for a given issue. What follows is a look at a few apps that can help you improve the security of your iPhone.
