Do you know which Apps have access to your data?

Take a moment today to check and turn off access to any Apps that you would prefer didn’t have access to your data. Your Location, Contacts List, Calendar and Camera are just a few…

  • Go into Settings
  • Click on Privacy
  • Select each item in the list to see what is accessing you data
  • Location Services, use GPS, Wi-Fi and bluetooth to work out your location, some apps need this turned on in order to work as intended, e.g. Google Maps.
    • You have 4 options when allowing Apps to track your location:
      • Never
      • Ask Next Time
      • While Using the App
      • Always
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the list to check System Services for more options, most of these you will want to make sure you leave turned on, especially Emergency Calls & SOS and Find my iPhone
  • For most options, use the slider to turn off (or on) access to each App
  • For Photos, the options are Never (no access), Read and Write (add/edit photos), Add Photos Only
