Apple informed us of the dangers of tracking pixels in emails and their solution is ‘Mail Privacy Protection’. Mail Privacy Protection has a number of privacy protecting features like hiding your IP address, hiding your location and hides data if you open the email. Apple is giving you a privacy report now. It will inform you about apps that access your data, camera, microphone, photos and more.
As part of your iCloud+ subscription, you will now have access to more privacy protection like ‘Hide my Email’ in the Mail app. So, if you want to subscribe to notifications on Platform De.Central so that you never miss the latest news, you can choose to hide your email. You will still get notifications, but your email will remain private.
