Block email trackers
In iOS 14, Apple cleaned up App tracking. This time the hidden tracker is hidden in The email you received Is becoming a target. These trackers usually appear in pixel format inserted into the email body, header, or footer, and these pixels return information about you to the email sender.

For example, this enables you to check whether the application really needs to use your microphone for operation.

Hide your IP address
In September 2017, Apple introduced smart tracking prevention for the Safari web browser in iOS 11. ITP is Safari’s way to prevent tracking your online tracking while you browse the web-Apple’s machine learning is used to find which domains track your browsing and then delete the data stored on people’s phones.
This technology has continued to evolve over the past four years. In iOS 15, Apple provides the option to hide your IP address from the tracker. This means that websites cannot convert your IP address into an identifier, and they can then use that identifier to connect all your browsing.To turn on IP address hiding, go to set up, Safari, Hide IP address Then turn on the toggle switch Tracker and website.

Your web traffic is routed in two directions: This is to prevent anyone (including Apple) from knowing what you are viewing online. The first part involves the server owned by Apple encrypting the URL you are visiting, and then deleting the information related to it that can identify you. At the same time, another company-Apple says it is working with a “trusted partner”-will assign a temporary IP address.
