Jamf, company providing enterprise services with Apple devices, releases a report covering permissions requested by popular apps.

They studied popular applications and checked all permissions apps are requiring.

Top permissions determined by report:

  • Photos
  • Camera
  • Location
  • Microphone

What organizations can do to prevent inappropriate permissions

– Encourage your employees to take a close look at what apps request before tapping “accept.” Does a shopping app really need their photos? Does it need their location?
– Regularly audit your iPhone privacy settings to ensure that apps don’t have too much access to your data.
– Use security products that offer app vetting.
– Use a security tool that can flag out-of-date OS versions within your company’s fleet of mobile devices.
