Safari is making it harder for users to be tracked across the web

Apple devices might be the best place to stay private online

Apple is shutting down share buttons and comment fields on websites with a new version of Safari.

If a user wants to use these buttons or features, macOS X Mojave will ask if they want the feature to be enabled. If a user never clicks on the dialogue, then it will remain inactive, keeping users’ information private.

Another new feature that’s being added is ‘Fingerprinting.’

Ads typically track a user by profiling their computer and what they do on it. Apple has added a new way to hide a users digital fingerprint so that their Mac seems just like everyone else’s Mac online.

These protections are also coming to iOS 12, according to Apple.
