With so many hacks and vulnerabilities going in for mobile devices, privacy is definitely one of the most important things phone manufacturers should focus on. Apple recently updated its privacy website with more details to how your data is used in iOS 9 and the iPhone.
We store a lot of information on our mobile devices everyday – we take new pictures every so often, we key in our private information like credit card information and even our fingerprints, we access various accounts online including banking accounts that are highly sensitive, and Apple wants everyone to know that it has “innovative ways to protect that data”.
The privacy page now shows how your data are securely protected, and kept private; Apple ensures that these data will not end up in the wrong hands. The updated privacy page also states that the company tries to store as little personal information as possible like Apple Pay for example, Apple does not store your card number, instead, they store a unique Device Account Number in the encrypted Secure Element inside the SoC.
For those who are worried about your privacy and how Apple is handing personal data, check out the privacy page for more information. Apple also shares details about privacy for its main apps like iMessage and FaceTime, Health and Fitness, Safari, iCloud, Siri, Apple Music, and much more. There are also updates about Government information requests.
