IPhone Password Monitoring feature
Data leaks allow hackers to expose and sell your information, including passwords, which is the primary target of cybercriminals, because it allows them to access accounts and applications to easily steal data and information.
For this, Apple has introduced a feature built into its operating systems called Password Monitoring, which notifies users of its devices when login data for applications and services appear in any data leakage of the sites in which they are registered.
How To Use The IPhone Password Monitoring feature ?
The feature allows you to know if your data has been exposed in your various accounts such as Gmail and Netflix and the rest of the login data saved in your device. It also allows you to then change it directly.
The feature alerts you if your account appears in the event of a known data leak. But your device might not let you know until you use the password to sign in to an account.
For those who have apps and accounts that they rarely sign in to, this feature is a useful way to check if there are any security risks around the accounts.
You can find out if your saved login data appeared in a data leak on your iPhone or iPad by following the following method:
• Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
• Click on the Passwords option.
• Log in with one of the methods you use, whether it’s your password, fingerprint, or face ID.
• Click on the Security Recommendations option.
• On the next screen, you will see accounts that have been hacked, if they exist or appear within a data leak.
• Click on the option to change the password via the hacked site.
• A popup will appear that will lead you to the website where you can change your password directly.
And in the same menu you can also see all the login data for the different accounts that are currently saved. You can also delete any password for any website by clicking on the account name.
