Safari Browser in iOS 12 and macOS Mojave to Feature Enhanced Privacy Tools
Apple revealed today at WWDC that its latest version of Safari browser in iOS 12 and macOS Mojave will include some interesting new privacy tools.
When viewing sites in Safari, for example, “like” and “share” social media buttons that appear will be prevented from automatically tracking users when they’re clicked on.
When users do interact with these buttons, they’ll be shown an alert warning them that they may be tracked, at which point they can decide to keep their information private.
The upcoming version of Safari will also implement new security measures to prevent digital fingerprinting, flagging websites that digitally mine browsers for information in order to learn about users and how they browse the internet.
Safari will also prevent websites from harvesting form fields to capture information.
More to follow.
