How to Back Up iPhone to iTunes: A First Step to Keep Your Data Secure

To remain on the safer side of the stream, I always ensure my iPhone is backed up to iTunes. If you are yet to secure your data, run through the following steps to safeguard your data!

To keep all of your data secure, you may need to back up your iPhone to iTunes from time to time. In case your device is lost, or the entire data gets deleted (unfortunately), you’ll have the backup to recover the valuable data.

To offer an extra layer of safeguard to your personal information, you can encrypt your iPhone backup. Only through encryption, you are allowed to save info like health, activity data, saved passwords, website history and Wi-Fi settings. So, if you want to keep the data shielded, password protection is the way to go.
