If you are concerned about iPhone privacy, consider the tips below:

    1. Shut off the mic for Siri and for individual applications. Go to Settings > Siri & Search. Then toggle off the following:

      • Listen for ‘Hey Siri’
      • Press side button for Siri
      • Allow Siri when locked

      To review permissions and turn off the mic for individual applications, navigate to Settings and then click on individual apps. If you do not want the mic for that app to remain on, simply toggle the switch.

    2. Consider using a virtual private network service (VPN) that will make your device less vulnerable to threats by providing an encrypted, private connection. Do your research and find a reputable VPN provider. Avoid VPN providers that do not clearly state they will not sell your contact information to advertisers. Carefully read through a VPN provider’s privacy policy ahead of agreeing to use their service.

    3. Opt for a comprehensive solution that incorporates enterprise-grade technology to protect individuals’ phones and tablets from all kinds of cyber threats.
