10 Top Tips to protect your iPhone before it is stolen
May's Bits & Bytes mentioned that 91,000 phones were reported stolen in London in 2022 - that's one every six minutes!
Recent iPhone thefts are leading to considerable financial losses.
We have now published our recommendations for changes to your iPhone settings to better protect your device, your Apple ID, your apps and your data on your iPhone.
The Byte-size Briefing has eight 'how-to' video tips and two text tips, to protect your device, identity and money. It also helps you retain and recover your data.
We recommend you read all of it before making changes, so you understand the implications.
If you are a business that allows mobile connectivity to your work environment – be that from a personal or a work device – we outline some key considerations for secure mobile device management (MDM) and how security is a shared responsibility.
The loss of just one phone can be catastrophic for personal and work security, so click here for early access to our Byte-size Briefing, where you will learn how to reduce your risks before your iPhone is stolen.

Raja comments: “As professionals, what we are really selling is trust and what our clients are buying is peace of mind. Trust is earned over time; with every interaction you and your organisation has - both internally and externally. There’s no shortcut. This is particularly important when dealing with cyber security."
