Security Apps For Your iPhone That Will Help You Sleep Easier At Night

You’ve spend a lot of money on your iPhone. They don’t come cheap and that means you have to look after it the best you can. To some that might mean remembering not to go swimming while it’s in their pocket, but to others we know that having some security measures in place can save us a lot of trouble if something was to go wrong.

We all have access to the same apps and there’s literally thousands of them. Downloading certain ones can be the difference between your iPhone working perfectly or being destroyed. If you’re sensible you will want to protect it the best you can and here’s the apps you need to help you do it.

Splash ID

With Splash ID it allows you to secure lots of valuable data that would otherwise be waiting there for someone to steal. Everything can be accessed quickly and easily so you won’t spend ages trying to get access to something important. We’ve all been there and it’s a real pain. The app also has a random password generator that makes it easy for you to set strong passwords every time you sign up somewhere new.

Snap Secure

If someone decides they like the look of your iPhone they would be making a big mistake trying to steal it. If you use Snap Secure you will always know where your phone is and the police will be able to find it straight away. You can also backup your data wirelessly and if someone does steal it you don’t lose everything on the device.

Find My iPhone

This one is the same idea as the previous one except it has a few cool features. If you lose the phone you can display a message on it asking someone to return it. This will maybe scare someone if they’ve stole it, but if you’ve just lost it you might get it back much easier. You can also play a tone on it even if the phone is on silent, which will make finding it easy if it’s somewhere in the house. It also lets you lock your phone remotely.

Lookout Mobile Security

It’s always nice to know you’re on a secure connection, otherwise someone might be able to get into your phone and take all your data. I’m sure you’ve seen a few celebrities fall victim to this little trick. The app will let you know when you are in danger. It will also tell you when you should be making backups of your data, and like the previous apps it will tell you where it is if you lose it.

1Password Pro

We all use dozens of different websites and trying to remember all the passwords can sometimes be a nightmare. An easy way to solve this is by using the same password for everything, but you know this is crazy because someone will have access to everything if they get hold of one password. 1Passowrd Pro allows you to store every password inside the app and you only need to remember one. You can also store more important data and you’ll always feel secure whenever you’re online.
