Apple is rolling out a new security setting for iPhones following Wall Street Journal reporting about a vulnerability that allowed thieves to break into victims’ devices and upend their lives.
The new Stolen Device Protection setting, designed to defend against such attacks, is being released to beta testers.
Apple is planning to include the setting in a coming software update. Still, users must turn it on, and it won’t cover all threats to your personal and financial information on an iPhone. Here’s why you would want Stolen Device Protection, and what to consider even if you turn it on.
Pop over to the Wall Street Journal link below to read more about this, or wait until the 17.3 update comes out, which should be shortly.
