Are my iOS apps safe?

Recently some apps in the App Store such as "WeChat" were found to be created by a modified developer tool and they were infected by a malware called XcodeGhost.

Although Apple had already removed the infected apps from their App Store, some of these apps could already find their way to our iPhones and iPads.

To remove any suspicious app on your iOS device, please refer to the list of infected apps here.


Social Networking Tips

Social networks allow you to connect quickly with others in many fun ways. Here are a few simple precautions to make your social networks safe and enjoyable:

  • Use a nickname
    It is best not to use your real name or names that are offensive to reduce the likelihood of being harassed online.
  • Set your profile to private
    Set your profile to private so that only people you invite can see what you post.
  • Do not disclose personal info
    It is best not to share your address, phone number or other personal data online.
  • Think before you post
    Be cautious about sharing provocative photos or sensitive information online. Your conversation could be copied and made public by the person you share it with.
