Google Will Allow Users to opt-out of ad tracking on Android

In the collection of data, Apple wanted to increase its privacy and openness to its customers. After Apple, Google stated that Android users would shortly be allowed to opt out of ad tracking.

Developers from Android 12 will no longer access the Advertising ID of the user, and if asked, a zero string will be returned.

Android phones now feature the option of "Personalization option for ads." In Settings >> Google >> Ads, you'll find this option. However, Google will give an alternative analytic and fraud prevention way with the upcoming Android 12 change.
