In prior versions, Bluetooth was accessible to apps without regard to why an app needed this permission. In iOS 13, apps must define how they plan to use Bluetooth and you're able to allow or deny access. Find My has been a staple in iOS for years, allowing you to track your Apple devices remotely along with other anti-theft protections.

New with iOS 13 is the ability to track your iPhone even when the device is offline. So if someone steals your iPhone and disables its internet connection to abscond from Find My, it sends an encrypted location report to any nearby iOS 13 devices via Bluetooth, which can then upload the report to Find My on your behalf. But the most significant privacy addition is the "Sign in with Apple" feature. Facebook and Google have had sign-in options for years, allowing you to log into a third-party app with your corresponding account.

But this typically gives the app access to some of your data on those accounts. With the new "Sign in with Apple" button, you can sign in with essentially a throwaway email address that relays messages to your real email address. So your data is safe and it's easy to ghost the service if you want to. Now let's turn our attention to the hardware.

Over 30, dots are projected onto your face to create a 3D depth map. This map is then encrypted and stored in the Secure Enclave, an isolated environment of the SoC.

Google Camera Go app launched and it comes with a Portrait Mode feature similar to the Pixel.

Each time you unlock your phone, a new map is made and compared to the one stored. If it is a match, it unlocks your device. And for added protection, it requires your eyes to be open , preventing someone from unlocking your phone while you are sleeping. Another feature that security users will enjoy is the built-in password manager on iPhone 11 Pro Max. With iCloud Keychain, you can store all your passwords and generate new ones for the apps you use.

These passwords can be autofill into apps and browsers. The passwords are encrypted with keys stored in the Secure Enclave for maximum protection. While the iPhone 11 Pro Max's price tag isn't the most budget-friendly cost, this year, there are options that can save you money while offering the same great privacy protection. For example, the iPhone 11 is a few hundred dollars cheaper and shares all of these benefits.

Companies in all fields realized the potential of this market, and thus, phones such as the Sirin Finney came to fruition. Its starts with Sirin OS, the proprietary Android skin created by Sirin Labs and built from the ground up to secure all possible weak links that could compromise the security of cryptocurrency transactions.

The heart of this is the BlockShield, a multi-layer protection system which provides features such as IP address hiding and MAC address randomization. Similar to other phones on our list, the Sirin Finney uses a hardware root of trust system to ensure no component has been tampered with before booting up the phone. It even includes a feature known as Trusted Display which protects all inputs such as touches on the screen using ARM's TrustZone so hackers can't use a keylogger.

Another significant component of the security is the Behavior-based Intrusion Prevent System. Using machine learning, the IPS is able to detect attacks from virtually every aspect of the phone. This system continues to learn your behavior, allowing it to understand the differences between an activity you conducted versus something abnormal and likely from a hacker.

The Sirin Finney comes with a number of apps to ensure all your communications are secure as well. For example, ProtonMail comes preinstalled to provide encrypted emailing, and the Koolspan Trust Call app provides encrypted voice calls. These apps , along with several others such as Wallet, are sandbox from the rest of the OS to strengthen their security. Known as the SecureShield, this feature isolates these apps from accessing sensors and components which could, when used maliciously, compromise the security of the phone.
