Security is the best reason to adopt ios9

I had not realized how many fixes were in there…but thanks to Tom’s Hardware that is clear:

  • Six digit PIN. You should move to that or use Touch ID

  • Two factor authentication. You need to have another device to login to El Capitan or iOS 9. Although a pain, it is very secure.

  • LibreSSL vs the buggy OpenSSL variety.

  • App Transport Security. Although google dislikes it because it disables ad networks (draw your own conclusions on that).

  • Mac address randominization for more privacy

  • Signed Safari extensions (finally!)
