If you don’t want the apps to know about you, you have options to disable them from tracking.
One of the possibilities you have with an iPhone is that thanks to iOS 14.3, apps must ask you if you give them permission to track you.
What is possible is to avoid tracking apps on iPhone, and that implies all the ones you have installed.
Apple requires app developers to request permission before tracking you or your device through apps or websites that they do not own. This is in order to offer targeted advertisements, measure your actions related to advertising, or share your information with information brokers.
If you authorize it, you can allow them to collect that information from you or your device. But if not, you prevent the app from accessing the ad identifier of your device.
So you can prevent it:
- To do this you must go on your iPhone to the Settings menu.
- Then go down in the menu and enter Privacy.
- Now tap on Tracking.
- And all you have to do is disable the Allow request tracking option.
As the option indicates, when the box is activated you are allowing apps to ask you to track your activity in apps and websites that are owned by other companies. But keep in mind that apps that don’t ask for permission might still try to track your activity.
By following the above steps you can prevent apps from tracking your activity on iPhone.
