Iphone SecurityYou might have heard the news recently that hackers have managed to gain access to a limited number of iPhones, demanding payment or around £55 in order to return control of the phone to its user. The attacks began in Australia but have spread across to Britain and the USA, too. However, iPhone Casino users don’t need to worry – simply follow the steps below and your iPhone will soon be safe a secure.

Obviously for those of us who love playing iPhone Casino games, we really don’t want our iPhone falling into the wrong hands. Our iPhones contain a lot of personal details and often banking information too, so we need to know how to protect ourselves from hackers.

What is most frightening about the iPhone hacks is that Apple products have, historically, been immune from malware and malicious attacks. IT seems, however, that some smart hacks have found a way in to the popular Apple products, however, so iPhone Casino users would be wise to take precautions.

Just so that you know what to look out for, the current hack attack displays the following message:

“Device hacked by Oleg Pliss. For unlock device, you need send voucher code by 100 USD/EUR (Moneypack/Ukash/PaySafeCard) to email: lock404@hotmail.com for unlock.”

Ideally you want to protect your iPhone BEFORE it gets hacked, so follow these steps and secure your iPhone now.

  1. Reset your password now and make sure you use a full password rather than a four digit code. Four digit codes are much easier to crack than a full-length password containing lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers and symbols.
     
  2. Set up different passwords for all of your different devices and accounts. Your Apple ID password and iCloud password should be different from the password you use to unlock your phone.
     
  3. If you have been locked out of your iPhone and you fear hackers, you should immediately attempt to change the credentials for your Apple ID.
     
  4. If you receive the Oleg Pliss message your best option is to try a factory reset – this might delete all of your data but it’s surely better than having to pay up, and you can always re-download your Apps. You can do this by linking it up to your computer and using iTunes.

If you carefully follow these top tips then you’ll be able to keep playing at your favourite iPhone Casinos in peace.
