Apple iPhone users get improved mobile security


Apple Inc. has bolstered its security codes just to save its users from advanced phishing attacks. Therefore, from now on, they will receive a 2 Factor Authentication SMS in a unique form that will be a mixture of numbers, alphabets and special characters embedded in it.

According to a new update made by the iPhone maker, the login to the Apple IDs in a novel form will be implemented to all users by this month’s end only to stop them from getting affected by any cyber attacks.

In coming days, Apple will also start restricting its users from visiting specific domains. Only to avoid users from getting their credentials stolen through auto-fill methods.

Well, the bad news from the tech giant and to the tech giant is that an American legislation will soon make it mandatory for Apple Inc to allow its users from downloading apps other than its own App store. So, in coming months, users can also download those apps from internet or from resources such as Google Play Store-provided they are in sync with their device hardware and software.

Though the Cupertino based company has tried its best to halt the legislation, it might still see light by this mid year, forcing the iOS maker to oblige certain rules and policies, putting users to risks associated with security and privacy.
