Combining iOS Safety Check and YubiKey Security Key for Maximum Protection of Your Personal Data

In today's digital age, managing access and sharing personal information on smart mobile devices has become a concern for all users. Failure to control access rights, coupled with the widespread trade in personal data, can pose risks to privacy and information misuse. In response to this demand, the Safety Check feature has been introduced since iOS 16. This feature helps users manage, check, and update permissions, information shared with others, and apps on their phones. Let's explore how this feature from HPT helps users ensure safety and security when using apps and accessing personal data.

Why is Safety Check considered a powerful assistant in security checks?

Despite being introduced over a year ago, we cannot deny the advantages that Safety Check can bring to users. Safety Check is known as a powerful tool that helps users manage and protect their personal data on their mobile devices. With Safety Check, users can review and update access permissions, information shared with others, and apps. Additionally, they can easily adjust privacy and security settings. This ensures the highest level of safety and security when using apps and accessing personal data.

The Safety Check feature on iOS allows users to:

  • Manage sharing and access: Users can easily stop sharing personal information with specific users or apps that they do not wish to share with, be able to know who they are sharing information with, and which apps on their mobile devices. Safety Check allows you to sign out of sessions on devices you do not use or suspect to be compromised.
  • Emergency reset: Users can immediately reset privacy and security settings, including resetting Apple ID passwords and other security-related settings.

  • Adjust or revoke access permissions for each app: They can allow or deny each type of access permission separately.
  • Delete data collected by apps: They can delete personal data they have shared with apps previously.

Managing personal data on the Internet

Apart from using Safety Check, users should also apply additional security measures to effectively and safely manage their personal data on cyberspace:

  • Use strong passwords: Use different passwords for each account, combine characters, and special symbols to make them difficult to guess.

  • Do not share personal information on social media: Limit the audience who can view personal information on your profile, be cautious about sharing personal information such as home address, phone number, and date of birth.

  • Download apps from reputable app stores: Prioritize downloading apps from the App Store, Google Play.

  • Always log out of online accounts after using: Invariably log out of accounts such as email, social media, and banking after using, avoid saving login information on public devices.

  • Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) on user accounts: Enable MFA for important accounts such as email, social media, and banking. Use MFA methods such as OTP codes, authentication apps, or security keys.
