Although the iPhone is generally considered to be a safe mobile phone, there are some threats out there for you to consider. If you want to make sure your iPhone is safe at all times, there are a few applications that you may want to download to help securing your personal phone data at all times. We’ve composed a selection of four fairly easy-to-use apps that will keep you safe from security threats.

McAfee WaveSecure

McAfee WaveSecure is one of the best antivirus applications that you can install on your iPhone. With McAfee WaveSecure, you can make sure that all of your data is safe. You also will be able to track the location of your iPhone if it is ever lost or stolen. The location information is very detailed and updates in real-time. If you lose your device, and you need to restore the data that you had in it, you can do so easily. All of the data can be put onto your new device without any problems.

Webroot SecureWeb Browser

The Webroot SecureWeb browser is another tool that you can use to make sure that your phone doesn’t get infected with viruses and other malware threats. With the Webroot SecureWeb browser, you can surf the Web from your iPhone without having to worry about going to a malicious website. You can also make sure that all of the data you enter on websites is not intercepted by third parties. When you perform a search on the search engines, it will also tell you which sites are safe to click on.

Firewall IP

Firewall IP is another app that you may want to check out if you’re interested in iPhone security. With this application, you can control what your phone connects to. If an app or a site that you are visiting wants to try to connect to a host, you will see a pop-up box on the screen. You will have the option of choosing whether you want to allow the phone to connect. If you do not want the phone to connect to the host in question, you can simply deny the request. When using your iPhone, you’d be surprised how many times it tries to connect to various hosts that you did not authorize. This can lead to this information being taken by the wrong sources, or it could lead you to malicious websites. By preventing some of these actions, you’ll be able to keep your phone a lot safer.


GadgetTrak is an application makes it possible to keep your iPhone safer. Although it is similar to an application released directly by Apple for iOS, it is a good app to have around. With GadgetTrak, you can keep track of any of your iOS devices like the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. With this application, you can identify where your phone is located if it is lost or stolen. It uses a combination of Wi-Fi signals, GPS, and cell phone signals to figure out where your phone is. You can also remotely control the camera on the phone so that you can take a picture to see what is going on around the phone. You can also send a push notification to the phone to send a message to the thief. If you choose to do so, you can also lock or wipe the phone clean of information.

All of these apps have the potential to make your iPhone safer. Download a few of them, and try them out for yourself today.
