Have you opted out of being tracked on applications on your phone? Most of us have.  That doesn’t mean that the apps aren’t still tracking you.

Tracking us and what we do online is how apps make money!

While re-setting the advertising id’s settings should prevent us from being tracked, there are still some settings that can’t change and those are the ones are being exploited!

What should you do?

Always get your apps from the App Store or Google Play.  Google Play has specifically said that the Advertising ID cannot be transmitted without user’s permission and it’s the only identifier that can be used for advertising purposes!

As always, if we can ever be of assistance, please feel free to give us a call at 603-524-1400, email us at support@samedaycomputers.com, or link up with one of our technicians on live chat at www.samedaycomputers.com!
