Everyone knows how important privacy is these days. We hear a lot about cybersecurity and how our data can be used. After thinking about it, we immediately imagine hackers, who hack our iPhones and iPads. But we are calm because we can easily protect ourselves from them by choosing a strong password and being wary of all Internet registrations.
But what, if your data can be stolen in an easier way - just by unlocking your gadget… You haven't thought about that, have you? We don't know who is around us and who wants to get access to all our secrets! After all, if somebody chooses the right password and unlocks your device, your whole life will be in the hands of that person.
Are you really so sure that this won’t happen to you, that you are ready to skip the stage of protecting your personal data from physical hacking? If not, then stay with us and we’ll tell you how to secure your iPhone and iPad.
Let's talk about iOS devices and what type of protection is the most reliable for them.
The most important feature, which protects iPhones and iPads from physical hacking, is the main Lock Screen Blocking. And one of the most reliable Screen Lock options is using your Fingerprint. This feature rarely lets iOS users down and ensures your safety. To activate the Touch ID on your iPhone, follow the instructions below. (And if you want to set this method of Lock Screen for your iPad, follow the same guide. Since the installation system for this function is the same on both devices.)
After your gadgets have been successfully protected with the Touch ID function, we have nothing to worry about. But there is information that requires a special approach. For example, your personal chats or notes. We suggest that you establish additional protection for this data.
But how to do that? Follow examples and tips from our article and find out how to activate Touch ID for selected applications on your iPhones and iPads.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: We'll show an example of setting up the App's Touch ID feature only on the iPhone, but remember that there is exactly the same installation method on iPads.
One of the most popular messaging apps is Facebook Messenger. Fortunately, it's also one of the few programs on iOS devices, which can have the Touch Unlock function. To activate this protection for the app, follow the instructions below.
We remind you that the Fingerprint Unlock feature will be available for the app only after it's activated in the Phone Settings (read above to find out how to do this).
The next application we want to talk about is LastPass. Follow the instructions below, in which we explain in detail how to activate the Touch ID feature for this program. We are confident that with our help you won't have any problems!
Now we want to talk about an equally interesting iPhone app - Notes. Usually, exactly this application stores all the recorded passwords, secret notes, and information with which users don't want to share. Blocking the entrance to this program is an extremely important task! Furthermore, it's easy to do - since this app allows you to set the Touch ID by going into the Phone Settings.
And what about WhatsApp? Fingerprint unlock function is also possible for this app. To learn how to set the Touch ID for this program, follow the detailed instructions below.
If you are an Amazon user, we have great news for you! You can also set up a useful Touch ID function for this app. We'll show you how to do it by going into your iPhone Settings.
If you are wondering how to enable Touch ID for Evernote, then stay with us! We'll show you how to quickly and correctly set up the ability to unlock your Evernote app using a Fingerprint.
We showed you most of the programs, for which you can set up the Touch ID function. We sincerely hope that you have found apps, that are important for you, and will use instructions from this article.
And we have one more advice for you. Let's turn off widgets for the selected programs if you don't feel safe when the content of Apps Notifications appears on the Today View. With our help, you'll be able to block or allow applications to show information on your iPhone screen. Follow the step by step instructions and deactivate the widgets for programs to protect your privacy.
