If you’ve ever seen a few little coloured dots close to your iPhone’s front-facing camera, you might be wondering what they signify.

We now have a solution.

These dots are apparently built-in alarms intended to safeguard your privacy and alert you when your online safety is in danger.

At the top of your iPhone’s screen, there are three main coloured dots that are known as Apple status bar icons.

An app is trying to access your location if it has a blue dot with a white arrow pointing to the right.

The use of your device’s microphone is indicated by an orange or yellow dot.

A green dot similarly signifies that an app is using your camera actively.

It’s important to understand that a blue dot next to an app on your phone’s home screen is unrelated and merely a sign that the programme has been updated recently.

In these circumstances, there is no need for alarm.

It’s worthwhile looking into further if you unintentionally come across any of these dots and are not aware of any app accessing your camera, microphone, or location.

On your iPhone, open the Control Centre and look at the dots icon at the top to see which apps are making use of these functionalities.

In your settings, you can enable the App Privacy Report so that you can keep track of which apps have been using private access to your location, microphone, and camera.

Reviewing the security measures on your iPhone is essential because there have been issues with facial recognition.

Hackers may be able to access your smartphone secretly by using face recognition while your eyes are closed or by getting around the security feature if you’re wearing glasses.

Make sure the “Face ID & Attention” option is turned on to increase security. This feature requires your eyes to be open in order for face recognition to work.

Through an upgrade, Apple has also addressed security issues.

For eligible iPhones, including those made after the iPhone 8, iOS 16.4.1 has been launched.

This patch fixes flaws in the previous software version (iOS 16.4) that could have given hackers access to user data, the ability to manipulate device functioning, and the ability to install malware.

You can minimise potential security concerns by maintaining your iPhone’s software up to date.

These safety measures combined with constant vigilance can help protect your privacy and make using your iPhone more secure.
