Smartphones have become an integral part of our daily lives, containing a wealth of personal data and information. From photos and contacts to bank account information and social media passwords, our phones hold a treasure trove of information that we need to protect from potential hackers.

Recent reports have shed light on a new way thieves are hacking into iPhones: by memorizing the passcode entered by users in public places and using it to steal personal data. The thieves then change the users’ Apple ID passwords, locking them out of iCloud and gaining access to vital information.

3 Tips To Protect your Iphone From Hackers

  • Protect your passcode

One of the most obvious ways to prevent a potential thief from accessing your smartphone is to cover your phone screen when entering your passcode or avoid tapping it in altogether. Use Touch ID or Face ID whenever possible when in public places.

If you have to use a passcode, then make sure it’s complicated. Treat your phone’s passcode as you would a bank card PIN and make sure it’s long and hard to guess.

  • Don’t store passwords on your devices

Avoid storing passwords to sensitive websites and apps on your smartphone, tablet, or desktop. This can make you vulnerable to potential hacks. Instead, consider using a password manager – a secure software application that can generate and store sensitive passwords.

A Consumer Reports survey from 2022 found that roughly 39% of consumers use a password manager for their online accounts. It’s a great tool to ensure that your passwords are secure and not easily hackable.

  • Set up two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication is a valuable tool that requires users to enter a backup security code that’s sent to a trusted device or email before entering their password to access a site. Enable two-factor authentication for your Apple ID, and use a separate trusted device to receive backup security codes.

Many experts caution against using SMS text messages for two-factor authentication, especially if you’re concerned about your phone getting stolen.


Protecting your smartphone and personal data from hackers is essential in today’s digital age. By following these tips, you can help safeguard your information and prevent potential hacks. Remember to stay vigilant when using your smartphone in public places and keep your passwords and passcodes secure.
