The next version of iOS is in the spotlight due to the increased efforts to increase the privacy of its users. After the new measures aimed at applications, it is now time to look at your Safari browser.
As the publication now points out MacRumors, Apple adds a new layer of security to Safari. With the implementation of iOS 14.5, it will be even less dependent on Google’s website verification tool.
Safari protects its users from prying eyes from Google
Dubbed the Fraudulent Website Warning, Apple incorporates a warning tool into the security of any website in Safari. To do this, Apple uses a similar tool from Google to cross-check information about the site you want to visit.
Regardless of the site you visit, Safari will send its data to Google for cross-referencing with the latter’s database. If that location is negatively marked by Google, you will be notified of its possible insecurity.
With the implementation of iOS 14.5, Apple intends to reduce the amount of information that will reach Google’s servers. For this, Cupertino’s technology will mask this information through its servers.
With this measure, Safari will send only a few prefixes to Google hash of the site under evaluation. This will prevent Google from knowing exactly the site you want to access.
Google will continue to know something about you
Apple’s intention is noble, however, it will not be enough to maintain the total anonymity of its users before Google. Although in a substantially reduced amount, the research giant will continue to collect some data from you.
Specifically, Google will still be able to collect data such as the user’s IP address. With this measure, Apple intends to “limit the risk of information leakage”.
