Normally Apple uses 3rd party to store your data, we encrypt it and don’t give them the keys so they can’t access your data. Apple stores encryption keys in our own data centers so you can backup and sync, share your iCloud data.
Can I trust Apple with my data?
No company, including Apple, Facebook, Google, or Microsoft, should trust your personal information. Instead, you have to control it yourself, as it’s the only way to make sure it doesn’t fall into the hands of unauthorized people.
There is no single answer to the question of whether you can trust Apple, Google, or a competitor. Your risk depends on who you are and where you are in the world. Does Apple spy on us?
Apple Company also denies using your iPhone microphones or cameras to spy on users, but it’s a nice relief for those who care about their data privacy when they have an iPhone in the room with them. The good news is that you are not completely powerless when it comes to protecting your data.
Your Privacy Report shows you all the cross-site trackers blocked by Intelligent Tracking Prevention in Safari. You can access your report from the Safari toolbar and Safari home page.
Safari checks if saved keychain passwords have been compromised by data breaches. It uses secure and private cryptographic techniques to regularly check the derivation of your passwords against a publicly available list of cracked passwords. When Safari identifies a potentially compromised password, your device notifies you. Your accounts and passwords are never shared as part of this process, not even with Apple.
Social Widget Tracking Prevention
Social widgets embedded in your websites, such as buttons, share buttons, and comment fields, may be used for tracking without clicking or using them. Safari blocks this tracking by default, preventing social widgets from accessing your identity unless you allow it.
Multiple Apps Features For Apple Data and Privacy Protection
When you turn on Private Browsing, Safari doesn’t add the websites you visit your history, remember your searches, or save information from forms you fill out online. You can use a content blocker to control what loads in your browser and prevent anyone from trying to track your activity on or between websites. The content blocking support is designed in such a way that it cannot send information to developers about what is being viewed.
Safari prevents advertisers and websites from tracking you using your device’s unique combination of “fingerprint” capabilities. These features include device and browser configuration and chrome config, installed fonts and plugins. To prevent finger prints, Safari provides a simplified version of the system settings, so multiple devices appear identical to the tracker, making it more difficult to locate you. This protection is on by default, so there is nothing else to do.
Maps sync your personal data across all your devices with end-to-end encryption. Your important locations and collections are end-to-end encrypted so Apple can’t read them. And if you share your ETA with other Maps users, Apple won’t be able to see your location.
When an app requests access to your photos, you can choose which images to share without granting access to your entire library. Alternatively, if the app wants to add a photo to your library, you can add it without accessing the photo. You can also give apps general access to your photos.

When searching using a process called “fuzzing”, Maps goes one step further to hide your location from Apple servers. Because your location can reveal your identity, Maps makes the exact location of your search less accurate after 24 hours. Apple does not keep a history of what you searched for or visited.
If you want to backup your photo library to iCloud Photos, Apple will encrypt your photos on our servers. iCloud pictures data, such as location or albums organized by location, can be shared between your devices by enabling iCloud Photos. And if you decide to turn off iCloud pictures, you can still use Analytics on your device.
The iMessage app (apple messenger), which lets you share stickers, songs, and more without leaving a message, can’t access attendees’ contact details or actual conversations. iOS and iPadOS assign each app a random ID for each participant, which is reset when the app is uninstalled.
iMessage and SMS messages (apple messenger) are conveniently backed up to iCloud, but you can turn off iCloud backup at any time. Also, Apple does not store the contents of FaceTime calls on the server.
When you add a credit, debit, prepaid, or transit card (if available) to Apple Pay, the information you enter on your device is encrypt phone and sent to Apple’s servers. Apple decrypts the data, identifies your card’s payment network, and re-encrypts the data with a key that can only be opened for your payment network (or other delivery service providers and codes authorized by your card issuer).
After your card is approved, your bank, authorized bank service provider, or card issuer creates, encrypts, and sends your device’s account number, along with other information, to Apple. The device account number cannot be decrypted by Apple and is stored in a secure element on your device.
Keys and ID
You can add your Corporate Pass and house, hotel and car keys to your wallet at any convenient place. Add your driver’s license or id card tracking (status ID) to the matching Apple Watch to your iPhone wallet and present it securely at TSA checkpoints. Just like subscription, keys and ID cards are safe and stored in the security elements of your device.
In-store Merchant payments are processed using device account numbers and transaction-specific dynamic security codes. Neither Apple nor your device shares your credit or debit card number with the merchant. If you use a rewards card, Apple requires that personally identifiable information (PII information), such as email addresses or phone numbers, be encrypted when sent. No fee information will be shared without your consent.
To protect your security master protects your privacy when sending and receiving money with Apple Cash, Apple Payments Inc. Has established a wholly-owned subsidiary to protect your privacy by storing and processing information separately from the rest of Apple.
