Facebook Begs Users to Enable iPhone Tracking to Keep Services ‘Free of Charge’Austin Roe
In a recently updated blog post, Facebook calls the prompt an “educational screen” that will “help people make an informed decision about how their information is used.” Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, will also show a similar prompt to users.
The Facebook blog post reads:
As Apple has said that providing additional context is allowed, we will show an educational screen before presenting Apple’s prompt to help people make an informed decision about how their information is used. It provides more details about how we use data for personalized ads, as well as the ways we limit the use of activity other apps and websites send us if people don’t turn on this device setting. Our screen also lets people know that they’re seeing Apple’s prompt due to Apple’s requirements for iOS 14.5.
Facebook plans to roll out the prompt to more users in the coming days and weeks.
