Here are some great tips for Maui Business People here in the State of Hawaii. 

Even if you’ve checked on your privacy settings before, it’s smart to do regular check-ins to make sure you haven’t compromised your data security with new apps or settings. Consider setting a quarterly or bi-annual calendar reminder to practice regular security audits and keep your information under lock and key.

  1. Disable Touch and Face ID. Touch ID and Face ID can be very convenient, but they can also make it easy for someone to get into your phone while you’re sleeping or otherwise incapacitated.
  2. Control what apps have access. Many apps have access to your camera, microphone, and location, among other features. Every once in a while, it’s smart to visit Settings > Privacy to make sure you’re comfortable with all the apps that have access to these things, or easily disable them if you aren’t.
  3. Set messages to auto-delete. Not only does this keep years of personal information out of the hands of anyone who might get access to your phone, but it also saves storage space. Try visiting Settings > Messages > Keep Messages and changing that default “Forever” setting to “30 days.”
  4. Stop reusing passwords. If you’re using iOS 12 or later, when you create a new account somewhere, your phone will auto-generate a random password. All you have to do is tap the “Use Strong Password” button and your iPhone will automatically store it to your Keychain for future use. Make sure to visit Settings > Passwords & Accounts > Website & App Passwords and look for the icon of an exclamation point in a triangle. This symbol means you’re using the same password on more than one site or app. Tap the symbol and your phone will help

5. Use 2FA. Two-factor authentication ensures that even if someone gets access to your password, they still can’t get into your account. Try an app like Google Authenticator or Duo to increase your security on sites and apps that support 2FA.you generate a new, secure password

 

Even if you’ve checked on your privacy settings before, it’s smart to do regular check-ins to make sure you haven’t compromised your data security with new apps or settings. Consider setting a quarterly or bi-annual calendar reminder to practice regular security audits and keep your information under lock and key.
