The iCloud Private relay feature is Apple’s newly introduced virtual privacy feature. It ensures that your web data, including your searches, location, and IP address, are kept private.
It is one of the pivotal ways Apple created to improve digital privacy for its users. However, this feature is only available to those with an active iCloud subscription and iOS 15 or later.
If a region, website, or network isn’t compatible with the private relay feature, you can deactivate it. Here’s how you can achieve that.
First, launch the Settings App on your Apple device.
Then, tap your Apple ID or your name at the top of the screen.
Next, select iCloud and tap Private Relay.
Then, toggle the Private Relay (Beta) switch to deactivate. Afterward, select “Turn Off Private Relay.”
