Version 2.1, updated November 23, 2021
Ensuring that your iPhone or iPad’s data remains secure and in your control and that your private data remains private isn’t a battle-if you know what boxes to check and how to configure iOS and iPadOS to your advantage. Take Control of iOS & iPadOS Privacy and Security takes you into the intricacies of Apple’s choices when it comes to networking, data sharing, and encryption. Updated for iOS 15 and iPadOS 15!
Your iPhone and iPad have become the center of your digital identity, and it’s easy to lose track of all the ways in which Apple and other parties access your data legitimately-or without your full knowledge and consent. While Apple nearly always errs on the side of disclosure and permission, many other firms don’t. This book comprehensively explains how to configure iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 to best protect your privacy while messaging, email, browsing, and much more, and how to ensure your devices and data are secure from intrusion.
Take Control of iOS & iPadOS Privacy and Security covers how to configure the hundreds of privacy and data sharing settings Apple offers in iOS and iPadOS, and which it mediates for thirdparty apps. You’ll learn how Safari has been increasingly hardened to protect your web surfing habits, personal data, and identity-particularly with the addition of the iCloud Private Relay, an option for iCloud+ subscribers to anonymize their Safari browsing.
In addition to privacy and security, this book also teachers you everything you need to know about networking, whether you’re using cellular, WiFi, Bluetooth, or combinations of all of them, as well as about AirDrop, AirPlay, Airplane Mode, and Personal Hotspot and tethering.
