  • Do you reboot your Apple devices?

    I’ll be the first to admit that other than installing updates, I don’t reboot my iphone on a regular basis. The other day Apple got a big patch bundle to fix several zero days/security issues. By now you’ve probably installed those updates. But do you reboot on a regular basis?

    The NSA issued a “best practices” guide for mobile device security last year in which it recommends rebooting a phone every week as a way to stop hacking. Apparently it keeps attackers from being able to insert “persistence” attacks on the device.

    How often do you reboot?
