Securing your new iPhone
« on: January 07, 2018, 12:35:00 AM »

While we still donít get Linux phones, iOS has less security failures than Androids. It doesnít mean it is a safe mobile operating system either. Therefore, in order to decrease your operating system exposures, there are some measures you can take.

1- Buying your phone is tricky
Going to an Apple Store and simply ask for a brand new iPhone will get apple minions to bring their phone with an attached credit card swipe device. By swiping your credit card youíll permanently link that hardware to your name. Donít do it.
Pay cash. Those minions will get confused and reluctant but thatís possible. They will also ask your email address, where the receipt will be forwarded to. Ask for a printed one.

2 - They got you on tape
Of course they have security cameras. You may want to wait 3 months before unboxing your phone. This way, in case you end up compromising your hardware either by using it for malicious purposes or because you crossed with a resourceful adversary, they wonít trace that UUID back to the a physical store with your face on tape.

3 - Keep it neat
Thereís app for that and you probably donít need it. Prefer browser.
Even then access your phone settings and disable localization services, spotlight, Siri for every single one of your apps.
You can also disable calling home features everywhere. Ensure you donít keep on any settings that allow apple to build an advertisement profile from you.

4 - VPN it
24x7.
