Brett’s iPrivacy Tip: With iOS 15, Apple baked in some privacy features but some are still in “beta” like “Private Relay” that works sort of like a VPN, and allows you to hide your real IP address with a random one. If you pay for iCloud in any form or fashion (e.g. additional storage, Apple One, etc.) then you have Private Relay for free, and you just need to turn it on in your iCloud settings. This will basically hide your IP address from websites or present a random IP address.

But even if you do NOT pay for iCloud services, you can still hide your IP address in Safari (requires iOS 15). This basically prohibits websites from following you, tracking you, profiling you, or even understanding your basic geographic location. Go to Settings > Safari > Hide IP Address.

Jeff’s Apple Watch App: µBrowser by Arno Appenzeller, the first stand-alone web browser for the Apple Watch. Cost:  $0.99
