Apple got caught with its hand in the cookie jar before when privacy experts protested the use of a universal device identifier or UDID.  Apple used this information to track the online preferences of iPhone and iPad users.  Device tracking is back with iOS 6, courtesy of a new tracking technology: IDFA, or identifier for advertisers.

If you want to turn off device tracking using the IDFA on your iOS6 device, do the following:

  1. Click on Settings.
  2. Click on General to access the General Settings.
  3. Click About
  4. Scroll down and click on Advertising.
  5. Set Limit Ad Tracking to “ON”.
