Apple will soon treat online web tracking the same as a security vulnerability

 

Apple is taking a hard stance on online privacy with a new anti-tracking policy in Safari.

 

The iPhone maker has published a “WebKit Tracking Prevention Policy” that goes into specifics about the types of anti-tracking methods it has developed, the practices it believes are harmful to users, and the unintended consequences of those preventive countermeasures.

 

The new policy is an extension of this privacy-by-design paradigm. The company seeks to prevent all forms of covert tracking methods outlined above, failing which it will ask for user’s informed consent before allowing tracking.
