How to stop apps from tracking iPhone activity


Apple offers many new privacy options in the latest version of iOS. One of these is better transparency when it comes to apps tracking your activity between apps and on the web. Now thanks to App Privacy cards, developers must reveal what personal information is collected. Apps can also be granted permission to track activities on a case-by-case basis.

For those not interested in allowing any apps to track their information between other apps or in web browsers, tracking can be switched off completely.
