VPN Network

All you have to do is utilize a VPN network to get to the remote servers.

Security

Use “erase” for your security. If someone is trying to enter your password code and gets it wrong 10 times, all the data on the device will be erased. After all, someone who is trying it 10 times in a row does not mean well, and you certainly don’t want them accessing your information.

Bookmarks

Locate bookmarks easier. Simply always have the Bookmarks bar open. In the Safari Settings, choose “on” under the bookmarks bar. By doing this, you reduce the clicks and taps it takes to access your favorite sites.
