Apple is all set to improve user privacy on its web browser, Safari. Now, the new update will block all third-party cookies by default. These changes will take place after in new version of macOS, iPadOS, and iOS.
New changes will ensure that advertisers doesn’t take your advantage for their personal gain. it will restrict tracking of your actions on all websites and will help prevent cross site scripting attacks.
some developers use tricks to avoid tracking detection by delaying redirects. new Safari also has a solution for that, the website’s script storage will be limited to one week. additionally, the new update also has counters to deal with such websites.
Safari is the first web browser to attempt this bold move. this will make it better than Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer, at least in terms of privacy.
Google chrome also has similar plans but it’s not going to happen for at least a couple of years. All in all, this is a huge step from apple for their user and hopefully, more web browsers will follow up.
