  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) February 12, 2016 - As a leading iOS app development company and Swift programmers with iBeacon technology expertise, we recommend a few measures for ensuring security.

    iBeacon is a low intensity technology that can only transmit short advertising messages from which the customer may choose to opt out of if they find it irrelevant. In the article "Managing Customer Privacy with iBeacon and the New Swift Codes" we have mentioned how a Beacon app can be designed using Swift programming.

    Further, we have mentioned some protection measures that the iBeacon app developer may use against unauthorized access. Briefly, these are -
    1. Install complex security credentials and passwords
    2. Protect access from unauthorised vendors
    3. Use encrypted channels with single source of control
    4. Push regular firmware updates and security notifications
    5. Install physical security measures to avoid theft and tampering

    Swift devices have been designed with highly secure codes and beacon programming is run in a safe environment. Further, with regulations and app security measures, customers have the choice to share their location. Also, the data they share with their beacon device cannot be used further than the domain of its operations (i.e. 20m). Hence, customers need not fear breach of data on their device by a third party.
