5 Must Have Apps for Privacy & Security on iOS 10.x
Microsoft reported last year that by 2020 there is going to be an upsurge in the number of smart devices, which is expected to rise up to 200 billion IoT devices which will then obviously need securing and the human attack surface can reach up to 4 billion people. Now, that means there are going to be a lot of probable loop holes in the digital world that could benefit the increasing number of hackers.
Since our smart phones hold so much information, it is considerably more crucial to ensure that our personal data is secure.
In this article we will discuss on how you can secure your iOS smart device from the increasing risks of cyber attacks or hacks. Here is a list of some must have applications for your security & privacy on an iOS 10 device to ensure your iPhone or iPad is protected from snoopers and safeguard your device from any kind of breaches:
The very first step to security would be having strong passwords which unfortunately means they must be hard to remember. 1Password not only remembers all your passwords but it also suggests you the most strong passwords there possibly are. Apart from managing your passwords with AES-256 bit encryption it has numerous other features as well which include one touch finger print login and an app for Apple Watch. This one is undoubtedly the best password manager.
Another app which I would recommend is PureVPN. It makes sure all the data you send and receive through any network, be it public or private, is encrypted using the most secure protocols (IPSEC & IKEv2). Apart from anonymity, there are several other features which are worth mentioning like split tunneling, dedicated IPs, cool iOS Widget, multiple languages and unlimited data volume. So, stream or download all you want with complete security.
In case you are searching for a spy level app, Keeply is your answer. It stores your secretive files and information, for example, photos, videos, pins, visa cards and notes. It also supports encrypted sync which means you can access your data on other iOS devices. And for the fun part, you can create a fake pin entry as well, the person who enters through a fake pin will find your Keeply vault completely empty.
Messaging has become a part of our daily lives in this digital age. Almost everyone of us use it for either a random chat or for sharing some critical info. So for the ultimate secure messaging we have listed iTorChat in the list of must have apps. It is a multi-platform chat-app, which is secure of course and sends all the data over Tor-Network, the world’s most well known encrypted web network. The app offers a completely secure and highly encrypted approach to have private/regular conversations.
Smart & secure A.I. email assistant made to organize your emails by importance or significance. Now! Who doesn’t need that in their life, eh? Best thing is, it doesn’t store data on any remote servers, so everything stays with you on your phone.
Hope the list helped you choose the best apps for your device. Such amazing apps are however not limited to just five. Let me know in the comment box below if you have used any other apps which are worth a mention.
