Apple is building its own VPN service for iCloud +, called Private Relay. Since the release of iOS 14, Apple has breached security measures and updates. Thanks to its famous tracking/transparency feature, iPhone users can finally keep all personal information in all applications active. This is a bold move for targeted advertising, and it provides users with many benefits of your online agency.
Data collection and public perception are valuable. As Apple announced at its annual WWDC, Apple recently doubled its privacy measures. There, by renaming the advanced iCloud service to iCloud+, many new features were discovered, the most important of which is Private Relay. As Apple’s own VPN, this technology enables users to browse the Internet through Safari to protect their browsing history from prying eyes.
However, cloud subscriptions are not everything. Two other features, Hide My Email and Safe HomeKit Video, have been improved as part of the iCloud+ feature. Hide my email allows users to generate and manage email IDs sent instead of their own personal IDs. For example, users may be reluctant to provide their email address to online surveys or even brand retailers.
In this case, hiding my email ID can come in handy. The user can directly set any number of identifiers as needed. All emails will be sent to your original ID for verification. The HomeKit secure video function is limited to the broadcast from the user’s CCTV camera. When linking to an Apple product, iCloud + will save all camera images as a secure video feature. This means there is more space in the cloud for everything else. Although these features are impressive, they have limited impact in some countries.
Take China as an example: a country known for tracking the online status of its citizens. Since Private Relay acts as a VPN and encrypts your data, this feature is not allowed in this country. Other regions include Saudi Arabia, Belarus, Colombia, Egypt, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Turkmenistan, Uganda, and the Philippines. The listed countries are accused of publication and media censorship, which makes their ban on Apple VPN a gritty and defamatory ban.
