Mail security in iOS

Yesterday we wrote about securing your mail client in OS X against automatically displaying remote content. But what about iOS?

Apple included the same feature in their mobile mail clients as well.

Under Settings, "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" and in the "mail" grouping, you will find the toggle for "Load Remote Images". Simply untoggle that switch to prevent the mail client from automatically displaying remote images.

Once this setting has been disabled, you will see the notice below when a message with remote images arrives:

Simply click the "Load All Images" link to view the images.
