In celebration of Data Privacy Day, on 28 January. Apple is coming up with a new set of educational resources designed to help users take control of their data.
As threats to the privacy and security of personal data are on the rise, a new Today at Apple session will educate people on how they can safeguard their data. And to drive awareness about the importance of data privacy, Apple has partnered with Apple TV+ Ted Lasso star Nick Mohammed in “A Day in the Life of an Average Person’s Data.”
