As great and as expensive as an iPhone is, there are a lot of thieves, hackers, etc. that would love to get their hands on your phone. You need to remember to keep your phone secure at all times. There are several iPhone security apps that you could install to help keep your phone safe. These apps would be able to keep everything that you want to be protected in your phone safe.

Kryptos

Hackers can actually intercept your calls and listen in on your conversations. If you are a business man or anyone who has important calls on your phone, you may be saying important things in your calls. You may be providing passwords, security codes, etc. And if your call is intercepted, then that information would already be compromised. To keep yourself safe from these kinds of situations, then you should have Kryptos installed on your iPhone. This is a VoIP or Voice Over IP app that would allow you to have AES-encrypted calls. This protection is actually up to the standards of those that the military use. In order for this to work, the caller and receiver should both have Kryptos installed.

Norton Snap

If you have a QR code reader app on your iPhone, you would be able to scan QR bar codes and have it decoded. The decoded message would usually be a hyperlink to a site.
