New privacy features coming to Mail and Safari
Apple’s commitment to protecting user privacy just strengthens every year.
Apple announced new privacy features at WWDC 2021. The company’s commitment to protecting user privacy just strengthens every year.
Enforcing strict privacy rules, Mail and Safari will now hide your IP address by default. The Mail app now comes with what Apple is calling Mail Privacy Protection. It hides details like your IP address, location, and if or when you open emails.
Apple is introducing the App Privacy Report, providing the same transparency offered by the Safari Privacy Report but for apps. It allows you to see how often apps use the permission you’ve granted to access your location, photos, camera, and more during the last seven days. You can also see all the third-party domains the app is contacting to share your data.
The new features will be available on iOS 15 later this fall.
