App Tracking Transparency’s Honor System

Lockdown Privacy (tweet):

Despite activating Apple’s App Tracking Transparency feature (launched in 2021 with iOS 14.5), along with our review explicitly asking Yelp to “Do Not Track”, the app still attempted to reach out to multiple known third-party trackers. From our experiments, we found that Apple’s App Tracking Transparency neither stops tracking, nor provides any real transparency, and instead gives users a false sense of privacy.

Shocking, I tell you, simply shocking.

I'm unaffiliated with 1Blocker, but it blocks this crap systemwide, even in 3rd-party apps, as well as more traditional ad & tracker blocking in Safari, and I love it.
