How to Verify the App Privacy Settings on iOS

With the iOS app privacy labels, you can check any app's privacy details

Knowing the privacy settings and data use by apps has been simpler for consumers since Apple rolled out its latest iOS app privacy labels (the diet label equivalent for apps) for both first-party and third-party apps.

To fully understand how your information is being used, read on to learn how to search iOS app privacy details for applications in the App Store as well as those that come preloaded on iPhone and iPad.

During WWDC in June 2020, Apple first announced its latest iOS app privacy information initiative. They went live in the App Store for Apple’s apps and third-party applications in December, as well as on Apple’s website for apps that aren’t on the App Store (preinstalled apps).

Apple compares iOS app privacy settings to nutrition labels on food. Apple’s aim with this initiative is to better educate consumers about individual applications’ privacy practises. The privacy labels for iOS apps are divided into three sections:

  1. Data that is used to monitor you
  2. Data pertaining to you
  3. Data that is unrelated to you

  2. Look for or bring up an app whose privacy information you want to see.
  3. Swipe down past the product definition and ratings before you reach App Privacy. See Details for the complete iOS app privacy information.
  4. You will also find privacy information for apps on the site; simply search the web for “app store ‘app name'” and you’ll see the privacy label below the ratings (click “See Details” for the full rundown).
