How to Disable Location-Based Apple Ads on Mac
If you want to disable location-based Apple ads that appear on Macs in various Apple applications and products, you can do so by adjusting the settings.
In situations like this, location data is usually used to make ads more relevant to you and your location, but some people might prefer not to share location data for privacy purposes. We will show you how to turn off location usage for Apple ads on MacOS.
Here’s how you can disable location based ads from Apple on Mac:
- Go to the Apple menu and choose “System Preferences”
- Go to “Security & Privacy”
- Choose the “Privacy” tab and then select “Location Services”
- Click the lock in the lower left corner of the preference panel and authenticate with an admin login so that you can make changes
- Next, scroll down in the Location Services list to find “System Services” and click on “Details”
- Uncheck the box next to “Location-Based Apple Ads” to disable them
Once you are satisfied with your changes, you can close System Preferences as usual, although you may need to relaunch some Apple applications for the changes to take effect.
