Latest iOS 11 Privacy & Security Settings

If you own an iPhone, then you probably updated your system to iOS 11 by now. If you didn’t do it, you should know that it’s recommended that you do this.

One of the main reasons for which you should definitely update to the latest version of iOS is that it comes with a bunch of essential security updates that you are going to want to have.

Location tracking new feature

For starters, the latest update included in the iOS 11 allows you to limit each app on your phone from tracking your location. You can do this either all the time or only when you are using that particular app. Of course, you also have the option to never limit the apps. To do this, all you have to do is head down to Settings – Privacy – Location Services to set how exactly you want to share your GPS information.

Other new features packed in the latest iOS version

After that, you have to head straight to Safari settings to flip on other new features that were not available in the earlier versions of iOS. You have to turn on Block Pop-ups, Prevent Cross-site Tracking and Ask Websites Not To Track Me. These will do their best to keep advertisers from following your every move online.

How to disable iPhone X’s Face ID

If you got yourself the new iPhone X and you don’t really know how its new Face ID thing works and if it works as you’d like it to, remember that you can always turn it off and just use a PIN instead. If you are worried about law enforcement forcing you to open your phone with your face, you can disable it and the Touch ID as well by squeezing the side button and one of the volume buttons.

Overall, it will definitely be worthwhile updating to the latest iOS version and checking out all the new security features that it brings.
