How To Fix Temporary iCloud Data Access Notification Keeps Showing?

Indeed, this notification seems to be related to the new Advanced Data Protection feature for iCloud. This option premiers in iOS 16.2 and I won’t be surprised if it requires more fine tuning from Apple’s end.

If the prompt is too annoying you might have to disable Advanced Data Protection to get rid of it, until this glitch is fixed:

  • 1. Open Settings and tap on your Apple ID.
  • 2. Go for iCloud -> Advanced Data Protection -> Turn Off.
