How To Get All Of The Data Apple Has Stored On You
Apple users in Europe have already previously had the opportunity to get all of the data that Apple has stored on them. Now this feature is headed to America. In an effort to be more transparent, Apple now has a privacy portal for us to find out exactly what data they store on us.
Don't expect to be able to see your messages stored since that data tends to be encrypted. I don't know about you, but that gives me sense of comfort...not that my messages are scandalous or anything ;-) However, here's the type of data you can expect to find stored...
-App usage info
-Purchase records for the App Store, the iTunes Store, the Apple retail store & Apple Books
-Health app data
Interested in finding out what data Apple has saved on you? Follow these steps to request a copy...
-Sign into their Apple ID account & look for the “Data and Privacy” section (link below)
-Select “Manage your Data and Privacy”
-Select the “Get a copy of your data” option
Apple will notify you when the data copy is ready. You'll then have about 14 days to download the info. Once you look over the info, you can request that Apple update your data if what they have stored appears to be incorrect. Apple plans to roll out the feature to customers worldwide by the end of the year.
