Privacy is an important topic for many people. Apple makes it easy to block apps from tracking your iPhone and iPad. This is how to do it.

What is App Tracking?

App tracking refers to the practice of apps monitoring your movements within their apps as well as other apps. This means that everything you do in an app, such as press, post and look at, will be recorded and sent to developers for their purposes.

Apple introduced app tracking transparency technology to help prevent any iPhone app from tracking your location. This will stop all apps from tracking you. However, it may be only a problem with certain apps tracking you. You can disable them individually.

How to stop individual apps from tracking you

Let’s suppose you don’t want all app tracking disabled, but accidentally hit Allow when asked if you agree to the app tracking you. You can stop an individual app tracking you with just a few steps. This is how to do it:

  1. Go to the Setting app.
  2. Scroll down until you find the app for which you wish to disable tracking.
  3. Click on the app.
  4. To disable Allow tracking, locate the toggle bar and tap it.

Stop Tracking Individual Apps

You don’t have to accept all tracking, even if some apps are allowed. You can always stop an app from tracking you if you change your mind.

Apple’s app tracking transparency feature can be used to block all apps from tracking you. But it might not be as useful as you think.
