Apple to developers: change your app, or else

by Volker Weber

In an email, an Apple spokesperson said: “Protecting user privacy is paramount in the Apple ecosystem. Our App Store Review Guidelines require that apps request explicit user consent and provide a clear visual indication when recording, logging, or otherwise making a record of user activity.”

Your move, Google. Glassbox is also available for Android.

I have not yet been able to find a way to prevent my data being sent to the "Foundational" partners, including Facebook and Amazon. Just try to manage your preferences to prevent data like your search history being sent to those companies.

Perhaps I am missing something. In most companies, there is the option to accept "operational" cookies and so on, but not for Oath.
