Were You Today Years Old When You Learned Your Phone Is Monitoring Your Passwords?
In 2021, your phone can do everything. I used to only be able to make and receive calls through, then they added a camera. Now, your phone is likely the most important device in your life.
DID YOU KNOW:
The first cellphone with a camera, sold to the general public, was the Kyocera VP-210, released in May of 1999.
One of the best, yet riskiest, functions of an iPhone (in my opinion) is its capability to save all your username/login password information. I can't even remember phone numbers but and even though I bounce between a handful of passwords I can never remember which works with that. Am I alone in this?
Yes, I said it's risky. Yes, I know you can hyper-lock your phone with pins, your face, and fingerprint but with the amount of tech-savvy hackers out there your phone isn't 100% secure.
But, even with all the risks, iPhones do a great job of keeping your device as secure as possible. In fact, this morning I saw an alert I have never seen before and I'm not even mad about it.
The alert was headlined with 'Security Recommendation'. caught my eye this morning. At first, I thought, "This is fake." But, I noticed it was delivered by Apple so I googled it to be sure it wasn't a phishing attempt. It was legit and is part of a recent update on iPhones.
After I tapped the alert it listed the websites and include, "This password has appeared in a data leak...", followed by the option to change the password for that website/account.
