Apple gives US users tool to see what data it has collected
Updated : October 18, 2018 06:23 AM IST
Apple updated its privacy website with the tool, which was unveiled earlier this year for users in the European Union in response to the region's General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
Apple will now let users in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand see and download all information that Apple has collected on them. It also gives users a simpler way to make changes to the data, suspend their Apple account or even permanently delete it.
Apple previously offered those functions in different places but brought them together for Europe's data privacy law. It plans to roll out the same tool for all users around the world by the end of the year.
