How to Find and Stop Apps from Accessing your iPhone Microphone

Apple products have always been eulogized for their privacy settings; whether it’s Apple Watch, iPhone or iPad – privacy is something every user will vouch for. If you check its Privacy settings, you will find many apps like Location Services, Contacts, Calendars, Photos, Camera, Microphone and others; you can control the privacy of these apps.

Microphone is an important app that is integrated with many other apps like Facebook Messenger, Hangouts, Skype, WhatsApp and more. If you wish to control your microphone, then here is how you can find which apps have got access to microphone.

These apps are ones that can use the Microphone app as the apps have got features that require microphone. For example, you can leave a voice message via WhatsApp, and hence, you need to integrate Microphone with WhatsApp. You can toggle the switches of the apps to control them.

Mostly, you require toggling the switches ON to use microphone to fully use the app. However, for security reason, you can toggle the switch OFF if you don’t use the microphone.

Apple always makes it sure that all apps in App Store provide utmost security to users, and therefore, the brand doesn’t want to take any risk; otherwise, there is nothing big in terms of security.
