The security is a key factor in smartphones. The mobile is an accessory in which all sorts of private information is stored, so it is essential to protect it, so that the information doesn’t get revealed to the wrong person. If you use Apple iPhone, there are four tips of essential security that every user must take into account when using their mobile. In this article we will get to know the four safety tips that every owner of an iPhone should know when using the smartphone. These four tips of security does not require us to install any application on mobile, and we can bring it to reality by our knowledge regarding such devices. So here you are:

Tip number 1

Setting an unlock password may seem obvious, but many users choose not to enter any password to your iPhone simply for the convenience of not having to enter four digits when access certain features of the mobile. It can be fatal when it comes to losing mobile, so first we must protect our data establishing an unlock code in addition to our footprint (in case you’re using an iPhone 5S). The procedure to configure the unlock code on an iPhone is as follows:

Access the settings of you iPhone. Click on the section “Touch ID & passcode.” If the password has not been setup, you will get the option “turn passcode on” and if there is already an active password, you get the option “trun passcode off.” Once you set a password, you can also turn on the option “erase data.” This option protects iPhone assuring that in case someone enter an unlock code for over ten wrong attempts, the phone will automatically erase all data stored inside. This option appears particularly suitable for users who store sensitive information on the terminal.

Tip number 3
