    Apple’s iOS 7 Includes Do Not Track for Safari Browser

    Apple’s latest operating system for its mobile devices, iOS 7, was released today and it includes Do Not Track for the mobile Safari browser. Apple’s Safari browser for the desktop has had Do Not Track for a few years. (See a post here about Google having to pay a minimal-for-the-Internet-giant fine of $22.5 million to settle charges that it circumvented users’ Do Not Track privacy settings in Safari.) I applaud Apple for its decision to give more choice to consumers, including those who seek to protect their privacy more. However, it is far too easy for Do Not Track to be circumvented and there should be laws or enforceable regulations to require companies to respect the privacy decisions of individuals for browser-use tracking.
