Now that the privacy option of iOS 14.5 apps is turned on, it's time to remember that you don't need to wait for every app to ask you if you let me follow you or ask it not to please.

Although the dialog has become very popular, there is an option to make it clear that you don't want to be tracked, right from the start.

To do this, you just need to go to Settings> Privacy> Tracking and you will find a toggle to prevent apps from asking you whether or not you want them to follow you wherever you go from the start.

A single gesture and your movements (more or less) will remain on your iPhone. Disabling the “Allow apps to request to track you” option prevents access to the IDFA (advertising identifier) ​​and prevents apps from requesting to track you.

Of course, on that same page you can check which applications you have given permissions to and which you have not, and change your mind. To do this, you will only have to change the corresponding switch to on or off, as appropriate.

Warnings to try to convince you to accept

Companies, especially those that base their business on data collection (we haven't mentioned anyone, just look at the image), are frankly nervous about the effect that the removal of user data from Apple devices can have on their results (economic and efficient).

Apple is actively discouraging this type of pseudo-deceptive display, but it cannot prevent companies from displaying windows in floating window preload at the crawl's choice. After all, Apple isn't obligated to exhibit the painting in a specific temporary location.

We'd even say that these deterrent boxes are real beacons of danger - a company that's trying to get you to let you track has a very deep interest in getting your data.

But as always, you decide!
