Company Contact Cards

In the Contacts app you can set a contact to be a company rather than a person. This is helpful for customer service lines or other company main numbers. You can use the company name with Siri, and also add images for the contact just like with a person.

    It is useful to keep information in the Notes field but I worry that when apps ask for permission to access my Contacts they access the whole database. If this is the case what alternatives are there?

    I would say that if you don't trust an app to have access to your contacts notes, then you shouldn't trust it to have on your machine at all.
    The only alternative is to simply not keep any sensitive information in your Contacts notes. Plenty of better places to put sensitive information anyway, like in a 1Password encrypted database.

    This is a very good tip. Can this be done on the IOS Contact app as well? Doesn't look like it but I figured I would ask :-)

    Erick: There's no switch, but if you create a new contact and simply enter a company name and no first and last name, it assumes it is a company.
