Why the iOS 14.5 Update is not the end of Facebook Advertising!

As of this week Apples’ iOS 14.5 Update has come into effect, and now thanks to this update your privacy is more secure online.

Now when updating to iOS 14.5 on your iPhone, you will be prompted with a pop-up to set your own tracking permissions. To explain this the simplest way possible, this new feature will let you the user, control which apps are allowed to track your activity across other companies’ apps and websites.

Many news outlets are reporting this new update to privacy tracking as doomsday for Facebook Advertising but were here to tell you, this is not the case.

Yes, this update will impact the amount of data Facebook advertisers can leverage in order to target audiences on their platform, but this update has been a long time coming and is the first step to making companies accountable for the data they collect online.
