Security Apps For iPhone And iPad
With iPhones and iPads, safety is of a paramount importance. Smartphones and tablets are passionately personal devices with a lot of vital information stored up within them. From photos to contacts and email to card details, people store up a lot of private, confidential information on their smartphones.
Not only this, but the iPhone and iPad are gadgets that need to be protected from theft too. We’ll take a look at some of the popular apps that are tailored to meet security needs of the device.
When it comes to secure password management with feature like auto-fill, groups, sync etc., there are two bigwigs: 1PasswordLock and mSecure. Personally, mSecure is as good as 1PasswordLock which is more popular. mSecure brings a fantastic level of security to protect and manage your various passwords. Options are simplified but quite sufficient; you can ask the app to generate highly secure passwords, you can segregate your accounts based on the type and management is pretty easy.
Find My iPhone
Apple’s stock GPS-tracking app is by far the best tracking and security iPhone/iPad app. It’s one of the coolest additions to the iOS firmware. Once installed on your iPhone, you can track your iPhone’s movements, and even remotely control it. Notable options include the one where you can make your iPhone raise an alarm and erase all data before it gets misused.
Lookout works almost the same way as Apple’s very own Find My iPhone. It tracks your device over GPS, lets you locate a lost iPhone via the web using the Lookout.com account, and it can also ring your iPhone remotely via any web browser or send a message to the iPhone if it gets lost. There are a few other features that don’t come with Find My iPhone. For instance, Lookout automatically saves the last-known location of your iPhone before it runs out of battery (or is switched off). And the app will also backup your contacts just in case you need them instantly.
