Your iPhone will Be More Secure Now

Your iPhone will Be More Secure Now

With the arrival of iOS 17, it is becoming known more and more new functions that will reach Apple phones. And although many of those that were introduced were of an aesthetic nature or aimed at improving the user experience, some of them were pushed to the background. And in the security section, this is where it has already been possible to learn about the new implementations made by Apple to make these phones more secure than ever. And in this post we tell you what they are.

They affect what is not seen on the iPhone

The iPhone has many sections that go unnoticed with the naked eye. However, they are necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the device. The English-speaking media 9to5Mac has made a compilation of some of these new tools that are already available, and privacy, both inside and outside the device, is the key to how they work.

Safari is going to be a more secure browser

Privacy in the iPhone’s internet browser improves both with what we do inside, and with the data that can be coming and going. And it is that, as they make known, now we are going to have greater control over the activities that we carry out with the application.

For starters, we now have the option to require biometric authentication by Face ID, when we want to enter Private Browsing mode. As they explain, this option will be displayed every time we enter and exit Safari. And it is that, if we have tabs open in this navigation mode, now they will only be accessible if we identify ourselves with Face ID previously.

Safari’s second privacy and security enhancement has to do with advertising and advertiser tracking data. And it is that now, the browser will be able to detect (and remove) automatically, URLS tracking elements and web addresses. And we can choose if we want this not to be carried out, if it is only going to be done in private browsing, or if by default we do not want to have these tracking elements activated at any time.

Photos are now more controlled

Until now, we could choose whether an application could have access to our entire library of photos and videos, or only those that we previously selected. Now, when we did that, that access was “permanent”, in the sense that we were not asked for access again. If we wanted this app to stop having access, we had to manually deactivate it from the Settings.

Now, the improvement comes when every six months, the iPhone will remind us that we gave permission to that app specifically, so that he had access to these photos. When this date arrives, the phone will ask us if we want this permission to continue, or on the contrary, if we limit it or want to revoke it completely.

Access codes may disappear

When we want to log in to a website that asks us for two-step verification, we can choose SMS as the method of sending this code that is required. If this happens, the message remains saved on our phone.

But with iOS 17, we are now going to be able to make these text messages are automatically deleted. And it is that the iPhone will recognize this type of message, and we can establish an automatic deletion, so that once the codes have been used, they disappear without a trace.
