Apple Rebuilds Privacy Site With 'Everyday Apps Designed For Your Privacy'

So you don't need to share them with Apple or anyone else. I was happy to see that Apple included clear information about its policies on listening to Siri recordings (and how you can delete that information), but I was disappointed that the company didn't say anything new to clear up the recent controversy about how Safari checks URLs against blacklists from companies like Google and Tencent. Apple's new pages still lead with a nonexclusive articulation about security, however it's now a lot more obvious what each application does to ensure your protection on an application by-application premise.

That's a pretty important change, because getting people to actually read a privacy policy or understand how their devices might be sharing - or, conversely, keeping secret - their data is a huge hurdle.

Safari: Intelligent Tracking Prevention helps stop advertisers that follow you from site to site. "At Apple, it's also one of our core values". Apple also points out that it offers DuckDuckGo as an optional search engine for users who want the ultimate in search privacy, although of course users will have to select it specially, as Google is still paying Apple far too much money for it to give up its place as the default search engine on iOS devices.


The Maps app doesn't associate your data with your Apple ID, and Apple doesn't keep a history of where you've been.

Apple's new privacy website. However, how Apple presents them has seen a fundamental change.

And while the new privacy website does go a long way to educating its users about very complicated privacy technologies and topics in an easy-to-understand way, the site also has links to Apple's privacy white papers for those that really want to get into the nitty-gritty of how Apple's privacy technologies work.
