How to stop all of that annoying iMessage spam

Apple’s iOS and OS X messaging product iMessage is used by millions upon millions of people around the world, and for the most part, it’s a great service. iMessage includes none of the bells and whistles found in other popular messaging apps like WhatsApp, Kik, Line and BBM, but Apple did a great job of providing just enough differentiation that users feel even more locked into the iOS ecosystem.

Here’s a perfect example from my own experience: More →

Watch out for this frighteningly smart malware that’s infected over 75,000 jailbroken iPhones

The malware protection that comes with Apple’s walled-off garden is only so good as long as you stay in that confined space, as otherwise hackers will be able to attack you with malicious programs. Specifically, jailbroken iPhones, which can install any iOS app whether it’s approved by Apple or not, are obviously susceptible to malware attacks, and a Virus Bulletin advisory notice details one such malicious program that has infected at least 75,000 iOS devices to date.

How To Stop iPhone Tracking

How to stop iPhone apps from tracking your location without you knowing

How to stop iPhone apps from tracking your location without you knowing

Last week, The Wall Street Journal confirmed an earlier report shedding light on the fact that Foursquare’s iPhone app is constantly tracking users’ locations even when the app is completely closed. “Starting today, users who download or update the Foursquare app will automatically let the company track their GPS coordinates any time their phone is powered on,” the report noted. “Foursquare previously required users to give the app permission to turn on location-tracking. Now users must change a setting within the app to opt out.”

Opting out in the Foursquare app solves your problem there, but any other iPhone apps can potentially track your location without your knowledge while it’s closed. Luckily, stopping them from tracking you couldn’t be simpler. More →
