- iOS Encryption – using secure passcodes, biometrics, the auto-lock feature and the Erase All Data feature for so many incorrect login attempts all combine to give you a secure environment.
- Find my iPhone –or iPad, depending on what device you have, this feature uses your GPS and your Apple ID to help you track a lost or stolen device and manage the data on it remotely.
- 2-Factor Authentication– helps provide an extra security layer for your Apple ID
- Lock Screen Data Leaks – limit what shows up on your lock screen and disable Raise to Wake
- Location Information – decide which apps you want to have access to your location information and what information they can get
