Apple markets iPhones as “walled gardens,”; a metaphor highlighting the security these devices offer. However, recent incidents and researchers have somewhat dented this image, proving how crucial it is to encrypt your iPhone. For example, in September last year, iPhone devices were subjected to the Israeli malware “Pegasus,” which exploited iPhones and other Apple devices via a “zero-click exploit.”
However, encrypting only your iPhone is not enough. While it may prove helpful against spyware, malicious applications, or trojans, there is always the online surveillance that every user going online needs to worry about. In other words, it is also downright crucial to encrypt calls, messages, and other forms of communication to help bypass online surveillance and data collection issues.
Fortunately, various fool-proof methods exist to encrypt your data, such as using a VPN or end-to-end encrypted apps for calls and messages that don’t log your data. But since choosing the best method can be tricky, this article explores your options.
