#California, #UnitedStates; #LaunchOfApple'sNewPrivacyWebsite
California (U.S.), Nov 6 (Canadian-Media): Apple's expansion of its new privacy website provides more explanations about its commitments but its policies and practices remain unchanged, media reports said.
The new site Wednesday is part of Apple’s ongoing push to distinguish itself from its rivals such as Google and Facebook, the later of which is more data-hungry and advertising-fueled .
Apple’s privacy website is mostly a users’ guide with papers on how to prevent apps and other third-party services from unnecessarily tracking users’ location and behaviours.
Many of the new privacy enhancements were announced earlier as part of Apple’s iOS 13 software update for iPhones. Changes include the ability to sign in to third-party services with an Apple ID account rather than Facebook’s or Google’s, plus more notices and warnings about apps tapping location data.
