Protect Your Basic Human Rights - Privacy By Switch Off These iOS Settings

If we say that Privacy is the fundamental human rights, then Apple is the guard of it, there are no such tech companies that are so strict on the Privacy concerns. On its own operating systems, Apple has set up many protections just for that reason, it will be our great loss if we do not take advantage of it, so today I will make sure to help you further protect your basic human rights with those appropriate steps.



1. Turn off your Location Acess:

Some apps like Facebook or Twitter requires you to turn on Location Acess to tag a place when you post, yet, if you don't want to be tracked, you should select either "While Using the app" or "Never" instead of "Always" by going to the Settings app, Privacy section, and then the Location Services.

2. Turn off access to the Microphone and Camera if needed: 

While there are apps that need the microphone and camera use permissions, like the Google Assistant, but most apps should not obtain the access to the microphone and camera, shall be switched off, considering that they may use the access to leak pieces of information to other people by quietly record voices or take photos in the background, it's better to them off.

3. Switch on "Block All Cookies" in Safari app:

Pretty much all websites use cookies to provide relevant services for you and show information that might be of interest to you. Google Adsense, for example, apply cookies that determine what kind of ads to display on a web page. Indeed, with iOS 12, you can block all cookies in Safari, a way to ensure your website doesn't track you, but also reduce ads as possible. To enable it, go to the Settings -> Safari, and then switch it off.

4. Manage Your Background App Refresh:

Background App Refresh, a feature that allows any app for iPhone or iPad to appear to be multitasking all the time, in which means apps will track your phone all the time, may be able to collect devices' info and analyze the user's behavior of using apps, that is how Facebook developing features, you definitely should turn it off, a way to save battery life as well.
