Kenneth van Wyk: Shutting down security gotchas in iOS 6

Kenneth van Wyk | Sept. 25, 2012
What to do if you have data on your iPhone or other iOS device that you want to protect.

On the other hand, security-minded users will like the new privacy settings available in iOS 6 that go well beyond location data. You can now enforce privacy settings for access to your contacts, calendar data, reminders and other things. Anytime an app requests access to these items, the user will be prompted to allow or forbid that access. The privacy settings are reached through Settings.

These are just a few things that we can do as consumers to make our iOS 6 devices a bit more secure. It's also worth spending some time stepping through all the system settings as well as settings for each app (including its notifications), of course.

Then dive into iOS 6 and enjoy the many enhancements that we now have to play with.
