Everyone should encrypt their iPhone. It’s easy to do and It just take a few minutes. If you do that, no one more than yourself can get to your data. Not even Apple.
Here is how to do that:
It’s important to have a passcode with 6 digits or using a pass phrase that is hard to crack. Because if someone can crack your passcode or pass phrase, they can get in to your phone and your data. They can even change the passcode and decrypt your phone. For example, a 6 digit passcode will take 5 years for a super computer to crack, according to Apple.
