How to download everything Apple knows about you

How to download everything Apple knows about you”

Apple in compliance with the new law opened a new Data and Privacy site that will allow customers with accounts located in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland to download all of their data the company has collected on them.

You will need to wait up to seven days for Apple to verify your request and provide your data. All of the information collected by Apple is, of course, voluntary but it is always good to know precisely what information they have and gives customers the ability to spot and correct errors.

Apple has always touted themselves as being a company that values the privacy of its customers and users, going as far as taking jabs at Facebook during the social network's data privacy scandal. This all can be downloaded with a few easy clicks on the privacy portal.

The feature is now restricted only to users in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland but will we rolling out internationally later this year.

Apple says the tool will roll out worldwide in the coming months (via 9to5Mac).

Once logged in, there are four options for you.

Then fill out the form, including your name and email, and in the details box, write that you're requesting a copy of your personal data. Data about your activity at Apple's online and physical retail stores are also available, including repairs users have requested and their AppleCare support history. If a user deactivates their account, they will not be able to access purchases from the iTunes Store, iBooks, or the App Store and also will not be able to use Apple programs such as iMessage, FaceTime, or other iCloud services. All you have to do is log in with your Apple ID, and voila, you've got access to it. Unlike deactivation, users can't go back once the data is gone.
