iOS 14 and Android 11 privacy tips – top 5 things to check – Naked Security | #android | #security

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
We asked Anthony Merry, senior director, Product Management at Sophos, for his top mobile privacy tips.

If you’ve updated your Apple phone or your Android to the latest version – iOS 14 and Android 11 respectively – you may have noticed that they come with enhanced privacy controls.

These new versions allow you to more easily check, and change, the personal information and phone features that individual apps can access.

So how about taking this opportunity to give your personal and work phones a mobile privacy health check?

Even if you’re running earlier OS versions – or don’t have a smartphone at all! – it’s still worth taking a few minutes to check the privacy settings in your digital life and ensure that they’re where you want them to be.
