Security apps for iPhone might seem unnecessary as Apple already does a great job of securing both the iPhones and the users’ privacy and data.
However, the inbuilt functionality aimed towards security and privacy is undoubtedly limited and could be improved with third-party security apps for the iPhone.
Here are the top 5 security apps for iPhone that will help you secure your iPhone, your data, and private information and make sure that you will be alerted if there is an issue.
Best iOS 14 security apps for iPhone 12 in 2021
1Password is a great password manager and is also one of the most popular security apps for iPhone in iOS 14 in 2021. The app lets you store your existing passwords and create stronger and more secure passwords by automatically generating passwords that will satisfy most websites and apps’ security requirements.
All your existing passwords and newly generated ones will be securely stored in the 1Password app using advanced encryption technology and accessed from any device.
If you use the same password for multiple websites and apps, you would want to consider downloading the 1Password app for your iPhone.
Jumbo: Privacy + Security
Jumbo app is a security toolbox with a ton of security and privacy features that will significantly improve the way you use your iPhone.
The app has a variety of useful features like finding which of your online accounts or passwords were hacked or involved in a data breach, alerting you whenever there is a data breach, and even has the option to delete all your social media posts after taking a backup.
My favorite feature about the app is that it allows you to detect and block robocalls from the commonly known number and automatically screen and reject scam calls.
You can also use the Jumbo app to increase the security of your online accounts like Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. Jumbo also offers options to remove or reduce your digital footprint by deleting your online photos, voice recordings from personal assistants, and limiting location tracking.
Logdog is another great mobile security app for your iPhone that continuously monitors any security attacks or potential data breaches on your online accounts, credit cards, and passwords. The app will provide you with suggestions to protect your online accounts, as well as your banking information.
You can also set the Logdog app to receive alerts if your credit card or bank account details are stolen.
The app will also regularly scan the darknet to identify if any of your personal information or data, including your passwords, login details, and bank credentials, have been stolen or have been hacked in a data breach.
Logdog will also monitor your email accounts to detect and identify any spam emails or malicious links and prevent you from getting hacked and losing personal and confidential data to hackers and cybercriminals.
Norton Mobile security app for iPhone provides a comprehensive solution for protecting your iPhone and certain online activity.
The app uses advanced scanning techniques to constantly scan the nearby WiFi networks and will alert you if you are connected to an unsecure WiFi network that is being monitored or eavesdropped on by hackers or cybercriminals to steal your data like the websites you visit, your saved passwords, payment details, and so on.
The app also protects your web activity by securing your web browser and monitoring any malicious activity or links on the websites you visit from your iPhone.
You can also set up the app to alert you when any app or software on your iPhone is not up to date or if your device is vulnerable to any recent data breaches or security attacks.
Private photo vault
The Private photo vault app is one of the best security apps for iPhone that allows you to securely hide and lock your photos and videos behind a password.
The app allows you to use a password, pattern, or pin to lock your photos and videos, and you can also set up alerts to know if someone tries to access your photos using the app.
Besides securely locking your photos and videos, the app also has excellent photo management options like creating albums, folders, sharing photos between apps, and syncing them across your preferred cloud storage providers.
You can also use the private web browser option in the app to anonymously browse the web and directly download photos to the app from the internet.
