How To Stop Browse With Even More Privacy Notification
At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be a confirmed fix for this problem. However we do recommend you the following:
1. Reboot Device
First, you should try to restart your iPhone, iPad or Mac. If the problem persists continue to the next step.
2. Cycle Private Relay Setting
Turn Private Relay off and back On! This time the OS might figure it out that’s actually turned On and stop pushing you the Browse with even more privacy notification:
- 1. Open Settings and tap on your Apple ID.
- 2. Tap on iCloud.
- 3. Go for Private Relay.
- 4. Use the knob to turn it off.
- 5. Select Turn Off Private Relay in the prompt.
- 6. Reboot your device.
- 7. Return to the same menu and turn Private Relay back On.
3. Turn Off Personalized Ads
Apple might have an issue that Private Relay is enabled on your device and is issuing these prompts because the ads setting is turned ON. Try to disable it here:
- 1. Open Settings and go for for Privacy and Security.
- 2. Scroll for Apple Advertising.
- 3. Disable Personalized Ads.
