‘ZDNet Recommends’ What exactly does that mean?

ZDNet’s recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of YOU, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form

This app will tell you if your iPhone has been hacked

It will also give you a wide array of tips, tricks, and tweaks to harden your security, improve privacy, and make your iPhone very hard for hackers to attack.

This app will turn your iPhone into a digital fortress

One of the aspects of iOS that has made it the winner that it has become is that it offers even the most casual of user great security out of the box. And the security is well balanced against usability, so users, on the whole, don't go trawling shadier parts of the internet looking for ways to turn off the built-in protection.

But it's possible to make your iPhone even more secure. I've put together a security and privacy checklist for iOS that will help you harden iOS from attack. But you can do more. A lot more.

I'm usually wary of security apps, but iVerify by Trail of Bits is different. It comes highly recommended and offers a lot of features in a small download.

iVerify

iVerify

First and foremost, iVerify is a security scanner that makes sure you are making use of the basic security features such as Face/Touch ID, Screen Lock, and are running the latest iOS version. It also runs a device scan that looks for security anomalies

iVerify requires iOS 12.0 or later, and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

It's a highly useful app, and so different to all the run-of-the-mill security apps that are out there.
