Privacy Issues With The iPhone

  • Location Services

    • Just about every app that you download wants to know your location.
  • Solution

    • Set Location Services to OFF under the iPhone Settings if you are worried about Apple knowing about everywhere you travel.
  • iCloud

    • This cloud service is known to have various problems with security and privacy because of the many personal photo leaks.
  • Solution

    • The only solution is to set iCloud Drive to OFF and make sure it no longer syncs everything to the cloud.
  • Safari and Web Browser Apps

    • The majority of web browser apps use cookies to determine which ads to show on a webpage.
    • The cookies also determine your location and shows ads for stores near you.
  • Solution

    • To stop the browsers form tracking you, you need to go into the Settings and Block Cookies and set all Suggested Search Settings to OFF.
