Think if you set passcodes or fingerprint reader at least to login initially on iPhone you should be safe.I worry about those that just let phone open with no passcodes or fingerprints or facial recognition.
Banking apps from banks should be safe, unless Wells Fargo issued (-IMHO-) no trust for them.
But, iPhone and keychain with 30-character passwords set by iOS or by antivirus providers, should be safer to use than anything you or I might come up with.
Yes, I did use the words could/should/ might be safer🤣.
Initial comment came from me, and I’m still reading of Android phones hacked through use of gummy bears or tape.😆 and photos of people to pass facial recognition.
Properly created software by banking institutions are expected to work on download from “Stores”, it’s the generic and free stuff for games that still scare me and I would have no faith in downloading. Or the below cost software games that might retail at $20 and today only are for sale by other than the maker for $2.99 I’d be suspect of.
Those I’d suspect more for being troublesome or a problem, designed by hackers to hack, backdoors built-in for the sole purpose of stealing your info.
Someday I dream of no longer needing to read this much daily,
If paranoia works for you go for it, remove the app after usage.
But, consider letting your iPhone create those 30 character passwords into your accounts of upper and lower case, intermixed with numbers and hyphens for pure joy.
Just remember to keep that password for every time you download the app again. Keep it in your keychain or password manager on phone and/or computer.
* Note - to all Android users, most of my reading of exploits against cellphones involve Android vs iPhone. Reason I tend to have limited faith regarding Android (my opinion).
You do have bigger screens and cheaper prices but, I think I’ll remain in iOS land for now.👍
And as long as my phone remains up to date, and usable memory wise guess what I’ll continue to use, besides an iPhone 7 with 128 Gb is still around the same price as a new Galaxy, etc.
And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!
