Apple has posted a new document detailing the iCloud Private Relay feature in iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey.

iCloud Private Relay is a new internet privacy service from Apple that allows users with iOS 15, iPadOS 15, or macOS Monterey on their devices and an iCloud+ subscription to connect to the internet and browse with Safari in a more secure and private way.

Normally when a user browses the web, basic information related to their web traffic, such as their IP address and DNS records, can be seen by network providers and the websites they visit. This information can be used to determine the user’s identity and build a profile of their location and browsing history over time. A user can then be targeted with unwanted ads and marketing campaigns, or have their data combined with additional data and sold to other companies.

Private Relay helps protect users from this kind of unwanted tracking by ensuring the traffic leaving their devices is encrypted, and by sending their requests through two separate internet relays so that no single entity can combine IP address, location, and browsing activity into detailed profile information. It’s built directly into the networking framework of iOS, iPadOS, and macOS, and protects traffic most susceptible to tracking: web browsing and any connections that are unencrypted. As a result, Private Relay protects all web browsing in Safari and unencrypted activity in apps, adding both privacy and security benefits. Private Relay is included with any iCloud+ subscription. This gives Apple device owners an easy way to meaningfully improve their
privacy when browsing the internet.

Don't you think it's IMPORTANT to let the READERS know this is BETA software? Seems both YOU and APPLE have omitted this FACT. WHY is that?
