Never Share iCloud Password or Apple App Store with Others :

May be its very normal for most of you but still there are many iPhone users who share there passwords with other and later they are worrying about their data to be tolen or lost. So, it is an advice from my side that avoid sharing your password with others. At times, your friends may

ask your iCloud password to update your App Store apps, never share your password verbally. You can type your password yourself, and ensure nobody else knows the password.

Are you aware about this thing that, Anytime anyone whether your friends or any other unauthorized person can search your location, they can check your pictures, and contacts, if your app store or iCloud password which is same is available with them. If you want to know how then go to iCloud.com and login there by using credentials of your Apple store  to see, that with your credentials how others can get the access of your important data or information.

Additional tips to keep data of your iPhone secure and safe:

  • When you are at home or you are not using your iPhone as do not need it then please disable   your location. Always Keep it on when you are traveling, So that it can help you in locating if you lost phone.
