Android phones lack iPhone’s app tracking transparency – what can you do instead? System Hardening Android

Apple’s latest iOS 14.5 update has dominated tech news recently, and it’s partly down to the arrival of app tracking transparency. The service gives iPhone users more control over how they are tracked by apps and websites while not using their services, and the question on many people’s mind is when will similar options come to Android phones?

Google might soon be releasing its Android 12 update, but it doesn’t look like a version of app tracking transparency will be included when it does. When asked about bringing a similar feature to its platform Google told The Verge, “We’re always looking for ways to work with developers to raise the bar on privacy.”
