Apple iOS 14.5 will hide Safari users' IP addresses from Google's Safe Browsing


Apple gets...

A partial hash match relative to the URL you are accessing by implementing this measure. Considering they have iCloud access to your browsing history anyway, this move doesn’t give them any more access to your private data than they had before but does stop Google getting partial match info based on your IP.

Honestly, this change doesn’t improve privacy in any massive way but it doesn’t harm it in any way either.
