By default, Xcode provides several snippets, which can be accessed through the button adjacent to editor and navigator, or though the shortcut Cmd+ Shift+ L

Hello Guys! Nowadays we developers are too busy developing and copying things from Stackoverflow that we tend to forget one of the most important things in our application.

Yepp that’s right, you guessed it. SECURITY it is.
