Snapchat, one of the most used applications by US users, is on the agenda with a move that will anger Apple. It turned out that Snapchat is doing research to circumvent Apple privacy rules.
It has recently revealed that Apple has refused update requests for applications that violate user privacy. Applications using data processing platforms experienced problems due to privacy violations.
It recently released a new report on Snapchat. Stating that Snapchat is looking for ways to obtain personal data from users without their consent, The Financial Times announced that it will perform this process through third-party applications.
Leaving Insider‘s questions unanswered, Snapchat confirmed the report published by The Financial Times. However, he stated that with the new privacy rules, it will stop the system it uses.
Some sources announced that TikTok‘s developer, ByteDance, is also working on ways to circumvent Apple‘s new privacy rules. ByteDance is allegedly testing tools by the Chinese government to circumvent Apple‘s privacy rules.
In fact, with iOS 14.5, Apple will force apps to be more transparent to users. Although it is not known when the new version will be released yet, it is thought that it will be introduced with WWDC21.
