Protect My Privacy

iOS App Privacy Protection

This page is updated frequently with the recommended privacy settings for a number of the popular apps used by our users.

An icon on the right means that particular type of private information (Identity, Location, Contacts, Music) is accessed by the particular app, and a red background means we recommend protecting it, green means we recommend allowing it, and an orange background means we haven't gathered enough information, or our users have not reached a consensus about whether it should be protected or not.

Identity
Identity - The device unique identifier. This can only be protected when Protect My Privacy is installed. Apps can use this to identify you if you enter personal information in apps, or your network provider might store this identifier with your name, address and billing information.

Location
Location
- The device's current location. Although the location can be protected in the iOS settings, when Protect My Privacy is installed you also have the option to fake your location to be somewhere else, which is useful if the app only works with a valid location.

Contacts
Contacts - The contact list on the device. Although the contacts can be protected in the iOS settings, when Protect My Privacy is installed you also have the option to scramble your contact list within the application which can make it hard for a rogue developer to collect valid contact data.

Music
Music - The iPod library of music tracks. This can only be protected when Protect My Privacy is installed. Apps could use this to infer your gender or interests.
