Use iOS Restrictions For Additional Security

Apple iOS has excellent “parental control” options. But really, OS restrictions shouldn’t be limited to parental units. If you run as a limited user on your computer, then you should do the same on your mobile device. So here’s an iOS tip from our Cyber Security Services that Tomi Tuominen shared with me recently.

Use restrictions. Go to: Settings > General > Restrictions. Enable restrictions and set a passcode.

And to start: set Accounts to “Don’t Allow Changes”.

iOS 9.2 Restrictions

I also prefer to restrict “Background App Refresh” changes to ensure that newly installed apps cannot run in the background until I explicitly allow them to do so.

Happy configuring to you!
