Limit Ad Tracking and Protect Privacy on iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Rushell, Eng
You are watching VisiHow, and today we are going to teach you how to protect your privacy and information by limiting Ad tracking and resetting your Ad ID on the iPhone 6.
- 7Ad tracking does not mean that the advertiser is specifically tracking you. It means that they are tracking the performance of advertisements. For example, a company selling t-shirts might run an Ad on laundry detergent, and they might want to track the effectiveness of the laundry detergent ads on a t-shirt site versus another site selling cat food to see which one is more effective. Logically, you would assume that the t-shirt would be the most effective, but sometimes Ad tracking can reveal surprising things to marketers. There would not be a problem with this if it was always run in the way it's supposed to be. However, many times it's not run properly. Advertising companies may try and track additional information, your behaviors, or things that they're not supposed to. When Apple finds out, it kicks them out of the App store. However, if Apple doesn't find out, or they don't get caught right away, they can get information you may not want them to have. To help prevent this, tap the switch to the right of Limit Ad Tracking.In the Advertising section, the first thing you want to do is turn on Limit Ad Tracking.
- 8Every phone has a model number or device identifier unique to that particular phone. You also have an advertising identifier with the phone, and earlier versions of the iPhone did not allow you to reset that advertising identifier. It was permanently attached to that phone. Now, however, I can simply tap Reset Advertising Identifier.The second thing is every phone has a unique identification code.
