Apple provides many different ways to protect your privacy while using an iPhone or iPad, but iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 add even more features designed to keep you safe and secure. You can hide your email address, hide your internet activity, keep track of app permissions, monitor unsecure passwords, and much more.
To take advantage of the latest features, make sure you are running the latest OS version. Go to Settings > General > Software Update. You will either be told your software is up to date or be prompted to install the latest update. Once that is out of the way, here’s how to use these tools.
Companies and advertisers that send you email can acquire certain information about your activity in the Mail app. They can learn if and when you read a specific email and even determine your location. The update to iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 introduces a privacy feature called Protect Mail Activity that can stop this.
