John Wilander, Apple's software engineer, said: “It's not that big a change. But we've added so many restrictions to ITP since its initial release in 2017. Now, we're at the point where most third-party cookies have already been blocked on Safari"
Her Safari Apple is the second browser that blocks them third-party cookies for all users
Apple's Safari browser is now the second browser after Tor, which offers all users the ability to block third-party cookies by default.
At that time, Google announced plans to block third-party cookies by default in Chrome. He also said he would apply it to Chromium open-source project, on which many browsers are based.
Apple's move to the Safari browser does not completely exclude it monitoring users, but only tracking methods based on third-party cookies placed in Safari.
Other ways of tracking users, such as user / browser fingerprinting, will probably continue to work.
A small step towards enhancing online privacy
Whether it's a big change or a small change, it's an important step in the right direction. Google, Safari, Microsoft and most Chromium-based browsers have already implemented it.
“This update helps fight against surveillance of users and on safer browsing at Internet", Explained Wilander.
