We are going to name a series of verifications to know if someone have access to your device or to one of your accounts. There are 5 points that Manzana He has made us known and that we show you below.
Surely you have ever wondered if someone could have some kind of access to your devices iOS. This is something that, personally, I have asked myself many times and that today we are going to teach you to find out.
We can investigate and execute several steps to find out and, thus, remain completely calm that we do not have any outsiders, obtaining personal data that we do not want them to access.
Checklist to find out if someone has access to your device or accounts:
Here we show you the 5 points that Apple recommends us review to carry out the verification we refer to in this tutorial.
1- Check which devices are connected with your Apple ID:
For that we have to go to Settings /[tu nombre]. The devices can be seen in the lower part of the screen, just above the option “Sign off”, and those that are yours should appear. You for example iPhone, you iPad, you Apple watch…. If you see a device that you don’t recognize, tap the device name and select “Remove” from account.
2- Check if there is an unexpected alternate appearance or an additional fingerprint configured on your device:
Access Settings “Face ID and code”, having Face ID, or “Touch ID and code”, having Touch ID, and check if you have any alternative face or fingerprint set to unlock and perform other actions on your iPhone.
3- Log in to appleid.apple.com with your Apple ID and review all the personal and security information of your account:
This will allow us to see if there is any information that someone else has added. Make sure all your information is up to date. If you have two-factor authentication turned on, check your trusted devices and remove any devices you don’t recognize. If your account doesn’t use two-factor authentication, please enable it.
4- Check the applications installed on your device:
Look for apps that you don’t recognize or don’t remember installing. If there are, uninstall it. You can search for any application that you find on your devices in the App Store and find out what its purpose is.
5- Check if you have a profile installed to see if someone has access to your device:
Mobile Device Management Profiles are typically installed by employers, schools, or other official organizations. These allow additional privileges and access to a device. If you find an unknown profile on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, uninstall it always checking with your school, company … in case the mobile phone was provided by them or you use it for a topic related to them. You can do this check in Settings / General / Profiles.
If you don’t see this option in Settings, your device does not have any profile installed.
