Prevent Websites from Tracking You While Using Safari on iPhone or iPad

With iOS 11, you have the option to offer more protection to your privacy and stop websites from keeping a track on your activities while using Safari on your iPhone and iPad.

Websites keep a tab on your interest to show related contents or ads that you would like to check out. As a result, you are able to quickly access the things you prefer. But what if you don’t want to be tracked and wish to provide more safeguard to your privacy? There is a way you can prevent websites from keeping a track on your activities while using Safari on your iPhone and iPad running iOS 11.

The latest iOS version has added a new privacy and security feature in Safari that enables you to stop websites from keeping an eye on your activities. It’s the easiest way to provide an additional shield to your private information. Let me show you how it works!

Wrapping up

One of the main reasons why I prefer Safari is that it offers more safeguard to your privacy. Features like the ability to automatically save reading lists from iCloud, private browsing mode which not only allows you to search the web securely but also blocks some websites from tracking you make the web browser very user-friendly.
