los iPhone feature protects your online activity from internet providers and other websites.

It works like a VPN service to stop companies, como Facebook or certain retail websites, from tracking you online.

Your IP address will be hidden, and any Safari activity will be masked.

This is important, especially if you’re using a public WiFi that may not be safe.

So if you’re ever using WiFi in an airport, coffee shop or hotel, you’ll definitely want Private Relay turned on.

The feature was shared by TikTok tech expert Appledsign.

How to activate iPhone Private Relay

You need to make sure your device is updated to iOS 15, iPadOS 15 or macOS.

Primero, make sure you’re updated to the latest version of iOS.

Para hacer esto, go into Settings > General > Software Update and make sure you’re on iOS 15 or later.

If there’s an update available then it’s worth installing it right away.

Once you’ve installed the relevant software, Private Relay is pretty easy to set up.

On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > Apple ID > iCloud > Private Relay and then switch Private Relay on.

On your Mac, go to System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud and then click the Private Relay box.

Private Relay gives you the chance to pick you IP address location.

You can pick a general location or a broader one such as a country.

That means any websites tracking you for advertising purposes may know where you’re located generally but nothing specific.

The greater your anonymity the less accurate the online content you’re shown may be.

Private relay strips any identifying IP address information and gives you a more general online identity.

It can only be used with Safari and can’t be used for popular VPN activities like trying to stream Netflix content from another country.

It’s also unavailable in a number of countries where the law doesn’t permit such activities.

These include China, Bielorrusia, Colombia, Egipto, Kazajstán, Arabia Saudita, Sudáfrica, Turkmenistán, Uganda, and the Philippines.
