With hundreds of thousands of iPhone applications available in the App Store, it can be a challenge to find the right solution for a given issue. What follows is a look at some key areas in which apps can help improve iPhone security, and suggestions of some specific applications that may be a perfect fit for your needs.

Password management

Several iPhone apps are available to help users manage all of their online passwords securely in one place. As long as the data is well-protected, an iPhone can be an ideal place to store and manage your passwords, since you’re likely to have the device with you no matter where you may be.
