Mysk coders are objecting to Apple’s widely lauded privacy policy for iPhone users. According to the coders, the Cupertino-based tech giant has a Directory Services Identifier (DSID) that is personally associated with each Apple ID and iCloud data and anonymously records data usage. This violates Apple’s firm stance on user privacy as it may trace your App Store browsing history using the individual DSID.
🚨 New Findings:🧵 1/6Apple’s analytics data include an ID called “dsId”. We were able to verify that “dsId” is the “Directory Services Identifier”, an ID that uniquely identifies an iCloud account. Meaning, Apple’s analytics can personally identify you 👇 pic.twitter.com/3DSUFwX3nV
According to Apple’s forum, it collects system information in order to “improve and develop its products and services” via its first-party apps and Siri. This may be viewed by going to Settings > Privacy and Security > Analytics and Improvements > Analytics data.
Users can even opt out of this, but the research concludes that Apple can track user-specific data and activity on the iPhone’s App Store via DSID.
According to Gizmodo, after Mysk published its privacy data, users filed a class-action lawsuit against Apple.
In other news, Apple is also being sued for allegedly harvesting iPhone user data regardless of whether the iPhone Analytics privacy setting is turned on or off.
