The movement is the most advanced grant Apple has begun to extend its assistance in China, a market which the sources notes account for approximately 15% of its revenue. Chinese residents’ use of the internet is massively controlled, and there is a very limited way to technologies like implicit individual networks, or VPNs, which help residents evade tracking and bypass the restriction. It’s deserving noted that Apple is not itself calling Private Relay a VPN, citing technicalities in how it functions, but the assistance similarly preserves users’ secrecy.

As per Apple, Private Relay encrypts a user’s movement and transfers it within 2 internet relays in such a process that no object can witness the contents of a user’s browsing data. A prime Apple-controlled relay allows a user an anonymous IP address, while a secondary third-party relay decrypts the web business and forwards the data onto its target. Apple claims Private Relay hides a user’s internet usage from ISPs, advertisers, and also Apple itself.
