Know the different ways it can be compromised and most importantly, how to protect your device from hackers.

How can iPhone 13 be hacked

There are several ways to hack an iPhone.

When a hacker tries to break into your device, they’re not trying to break through the operating system, which can be genuinely challenging. They instead attempt to trap the user. Some of the most popular ways to do so are given below.

Hack through WiFi: Sketchy public WiFi networks are the easiest way for a hacker to break into your device. These are everywhere from airports, cafes, restaurants and hotels. You come across these open networks that ask you a lot of basic questions when trying to get your information. When you connect to them, they can track your device and all the information on it

Hacking through URLs: Also known as phishing, in this method of hacking an iPhone 13, the hacker sends a link with big promises. They can win a lottery, get a free car or get ridiculous discounts. And all of these messages ask you to click a link to sign up. When you do, they steal your information and use that same information to hack into your account.

Hacking through apps: Although the App Store is fairly safe for more malicious apps, some apps that aren’t actively trying to steal your money and masquerade as a functional application can sometimes slip under the radar. These apps ask for many unnecessary permissions and steal your data.

Apart from these, there are also age-old classics like scenarios where hackers pretend to be from a reputable institution or a bank and ask for your bank account information to steal your data and later hack into your account.
