Here’s why nearly half of Android users consider switching to Apple

According to a survey conducted by information security service company Beyond Identity recently, 49% of Android users are considering switching to the iPhone. The survey claims that the major reasons for switching are security and privacy issues. The survey randomly examines the mobile phone security habits and feelings of 1,003 users. The results reveal that 76% of Apple users felt that the security performance of their mobile phones are better, slightly higher than 74% of Android users. When it comes to cloud services, 20% of iCloud users believe it is absolutely secure. However, only 13% of users in the Android camp trust Google’s password manager to be safe.

In addition, many iPhone users said in the survey that they had never encountered any form of a security breach. In fact, some Apple users claim that the system is “too safe”.  Interestingly, from the survey results, most iPhone users themselves are more inclined to the security of personal information. Compared to Android users, surveyed iPhone users are more likely to use a 6-digit unlock code. They are also more likely to focus on privacy-related information such as the phone’s location tracking.

The report says

“According to the users of each type of smartphone, the iPhone 13 Pro Max felt remarkably safer than the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. In fact, iPhone 13 users were more than twice as likely to say that theirs was the most secure smartphone they had ever used…Apple iCloud Keychain (the company’s password storing app) users were seven percentage points more likely than Google Password Manager users to feel “extremely” secure about their password storage method. Still, there’s an inherent risk to the convenience of password storing—and even using a password in the first place—compared to more secure passwordless solutions”.

Generally, the study reveals that Apple users pay more attention to security than Android users.

    It’s good Apple users feel their data is more secure but that’s mostly based on Apple not being open about breaches. There are the current Webkit vulnerabilities and the 128 million iPhone users who lost their data in 2015 to XcodeGhost.
