At the Worldwide Developers Conference WWDC 2020, which took place for the first time in a virtual manner, Apple presented the new features of the upcoming Safari browser in version 14. It places a special focus on data protection and data security, but above all improves transparency for the user. The underlying features, especially the Intelligent Tracking Prevention, have been standard for years.

Spotify's web player works with Safari again

  Spotify's web player works with Safari again In 2017, Spotify’s Safari web player vanished without any explanation. Users were forced to use another browser or the native Mac app. Now, just as mysteriously, Spotify has added Safari back to its list of approved browsers. After almost three years, loyal Safari users can finally listen to Spotify in the browser once again. It’s always been a little strange that Spotify didn’t work in Safari. Even Google’s music service works fine with the browser. Of course, the public beta of Apple Music’s web player is also compatible.Spotify made the change quietly and without any announcement. It was spotted by a Reddit user and reported by 9to5Mac.

The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (gtag.js, ga.js, analytics .js, and dc.js) that is running on websites from sharing information with Google Analytics Using the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on will not prevent site owners from using other tools to measure site analytics .

Describe the problem and steps to reproduce it: Google Analytics is used on the about:addons site while browsing not installed AddOns. What happened? It's tracking users and giving data to google directly without any consent.

pretense: does Safari 14 block Google Analytics?

A screenshot by journalist Benedict Evans appeared during the first reports on the browser's new privacy report, which was supposed to show that Safari 14 was blocking the use of Google Analytics on websites. Evans has since deleted the tweet. A screenshot distributed by Apple, however, went well with the message and seemed to confirm the suspicion.

The news spread quickly. Tech media such as Apple Insider took up the report, as did SEO magazines such as Search Engine Journal , which of course have a very special interest in the topic.

developer delves into the details and calms down again.

The Finnish Google developer expert Simo Ahava did not want to believe the messages as he saw them and made his own impression. In the result he comes to a yes and a no. Yes, Apple is responsible for the misunderstanding. No, Safari 14 does not block Google Analytics.

After a test installation of the new macOS 11 Big Sur and tests with the Safari 14 and its predecessor version, Ahava comes to the conclusion that basically nothing has changed technically. The actual change obviously only affects the presentation to the outside world. Instead of simply using the intelligent tracking prevention methods as before, Safari 14 is talkative and explains what the user is doing in the new data protection overview.

Unfortunately he is misunderstood. The Privacy Report uses terms such as block (block), prevent (such as: avoid) and tracker, which are associated with more aggressive measures. In fact, the Privacy Report only points out potential damage.

Google Analytics: usage decides on risk assessment

So the report correctly describes Google Analytics as a "tracking domain" because there is a pure possibility of cross-site tracking. This is explained by the fact that Safari repeatedly finds references to Google Analytics on various websites. This would generally enable the domain to do cross-site tracking. The fact that she does that is neither claimed nor proven. Rather, Intelligent Tracking Prevention is looking for additional evidence in the background before taking action.

Google Voice and Google Fi finally work with the same account

  Google Voice and Google Fi finally work with the same account Google Voice and Google Fi have effectively been enemies for years — you could have a virtual phone number or aggressively-priced cellphone service, but not both on one account. At last, though, you won’t have to choose one over the other. Google now lets Voice and Fi coexist on the same account, so you can take advantage of Voice’s forwarding (among other features) without having to turn to a more conventional wireless carrier. The change isThe change is rolling out now and should be available to everyone within a few days by enabling call forwarding on Voice’s settings page. While there are only so many people who want both Voice and Fi, this does eliminate a barrier to adopting Fi in the first place.

In the case of Google Analytics you will not find them. Statistics is a first-party analysis tool and cannot be associated with cross-site tracking. All processes that Google Analytics performs on users' computers and on their own servers are clearly signed and do not include access to third-party resources, which would be a prerequisite for damage potential.

As a result, Apple has created avoidable turmoil. Safari developers are advised to check the terms in the new Privacy Report (data protection overview) again for suitability, or at least to define them clearly within the report. Google Analytics users can sit back and relax.
