Safari prevents advertiser trackers from following you all over the web. It can also tell you which websites have tried to collect data about you and how much it has been blocked. Here’s how to generate your privacy report on Safari.
First, open Safari on your Mac from the Launchpad or by searching for it in Spotlight. Click on “Safari”
Select ‘Privacy report’.
Safari will then open a new window with details including how many trackers it has blocked from profiling you, the percentage of websites you’ve visited with trackers, and more.
You can also browse the list of websites and see how many trackers they have used.
Click the “Trackers” tab to browse the tracker names, the companies that created them, and how often Safari detected them during your browsing sessions.
You can also access Safari’s privacy reporting tools while browsing to instantly check how intrusive a website you visit is.
To do this, go to the website you want to inspect and then click the shield icon to the left of the address bar. In the window that appears, you can see how many third-party trackers Safari has prevented from monitoring you.
Click the “Trackers on this web page” drop-down arrow to see the full list of trackers.
Safari provides trackers by default. However, if you want to make sure it’s running, just click on ‘Safari’ in the menu bar and select ‘Preferences’.
Click the “Privacy” tab and check the box next to “Prevent cross-site tracking” if it is not already checked.
If you want to protect yourself even further, there are many more privacy tools available in the Safari app for iPhone and iPad.
