With devices like the iPhone now completely ubiquitous everyday items, most people use their smartphone store a huge amount of personal data. It’s very common to use the Notes app on iOS, for example, to keep track of important information.
Whilst convenient, the use of non-secure native apps places you at significant risk if your phone is lost, stolen or accessed without your knowledge. Financial data and account passwords can be compromised with big consequences. In addition, the iPhone’s default photos app has no embedded security – and most people have photos or videos that they would rather keep private. This is where Leo Privacy Guard comes in.
Leo Privacy Guard gets started with a short little introduction to get you acquainted with the features of the app. Following on from that, you’re invited to improve your digital security by implementing strategies that include:
- Hiding images and videos
- Storing bank card information and numbers
- Locking away online account information like usernames and passwords
- Manage membership and loyalty cards by putting the data inside Privacy Guard
A 4-digit passcode (not the same as your default device passcode) or dot-lock is used to secure your data, with a secret question used as password back-up. You also have the option of adding fingerprint scanning for an added layer of security.
In addition to safe storage of personal information, there is a secure camera option to take clandestine photos and also a safe QR-reader so that you can scan any items without having the history logged.
Digital security is a must in this day and age and the Leo Privacy Guard is an excellent iOS application to keep your data safe.
Leo Privacy Guard requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
