Make an Ap­ple Watch more se­cure

Pre­vent pry­ing eyes from gain­ing ac­cess to info on your Watch with David Crookes.

Your Ap­ple Watch stores per­sonal data, so it makes sense to be care­ful about keep­ing both the Watch and the in­for­ma­tion on it as safe as you can. Make sure you use a pass­code and set up a way to track your Watch if you do hap­pen to mis­lay it. There are also some other set­tings you should pay at­ten­tion to, such as those re­lated to health and fit­ness.

In ad­di­tion, the Watch and your iPhone sync your data, mean­ing you need to con­sider the pri­vacy on your phone, too. Since there is al­ways a dan­ger that some­one could use your Watch to buy some­thing with Ap­ple Pay with­out your phone nearby, Watch se­cu­rity is some­thing you should take very se­ri­ously. Luck­ily, pro­tect­ing your Watch and your data doesn’t take long.
