On a May 9, 2021 article for Mashable, writer Rachel Kraus updates us about the results of Apple’s update to iOS which enables users to stop apps from tracking their activities online.
Current data is showing that of the 3% of users who have updated their devices to the latest iOS version, only 4% have agreed to be tracked.
Editor’s Note: We are happy to see that more and more people are finally starting to realize the power of their personal data. This update has given some users control over the data they want to share (or in this case, not share). No wonder Facebook has been an opponent of this new update! As their business model is dependent on tracking users, Facebook is bound to lose a lot of money from this latest development.
This update is a refreshing change, but we must still take charge of protecting our own data [see DATA PRIVACY AND PERSONAL SECURITY to get some ideas].
