iPhone security

iPhone Password
The ‘iPhone’ is great & one of the less obvious features that has intrigued me is the finger temperature touch screen sensitivity. No gloves allowed. With the Sci Fi ring of ‘2010’, ‘TwentyTen’ to the approaching new year I inevitably began thinking of the exciting technical advances users could expect over the next decade. The touch screen clearly will bring the user a whole new userability experience.

These ease of use advances bring additional security issues. I began increaseing my use of my phone for more than calls & texts with a ‘htc’. Before that I carried a PDA as well as the mobile.

I’ve never been convinced by the voice recognition systems. Have you tried using dictation software? Hence I wouldn’t rate them as a reliable security measure. But the touch screen really opens up the possibilities. When will ‘Apple’ integrate fingerprint recognition into the ‘iPhone’ ? It could be inoptrusive, a listed feature, when the user taps their password into the phone the ‘iPhone’ would recognise it’s owners fingerprints.

I should take a moment to blame/ thank Patricia Cornwalls book ‘The Scarpetta Factor’ for re-reminding me of the importance of phone security.

27th February 2013: to get the most out of the iPhone you need a mac. Macintosh managers will readily admit that the iPhone & iTunes is good only better via a mac. I recognise the truth of this from both sides now. Intuitive elements of mac & iPhone are fabulous, eg playing with photos, are a complete pain in the taobh thiar via windows.

  1. I really think that the cell phone needs more security.

    • Hi there! Thank you for you comment. Indeed they do, in fact mobiles need more user friendly security. In particular users need to use the security that is available. Set the password. Save phone numbers to the sim card and make a copy of the sim card. Last St Patricks day my mother dropped her mobile phone a few yards from a Gardai station. We knew ‘the where’ but ‘the when’, wasn’t discovered until it was too late to recover the phone.

      We secured her call credit by phoning her service provider, they blocked access to it. The Gardai (Police) informed us that had we given the phones IMEI number to our service provider the phone could be blocked completely rendering it useless to the new recipient. It couldn’t be unblocked by a third party either. In other words the dishonest finder would not be rewarded for not turning in the found mobile phone as all they have now is an inert electronic box.
