Stocks & Privacy

Stocks is designed to protect your information.

Protecting the privacy and security of your information is a priority for everyone at Apple. We work hard to collect only the data we need to make your experience better. When we do collect data we believe it’s important for you to know what we’re collecting and why we need it, so you can make informed choices. Stocks, like every Apple product and service, is designed with these principles in mind.

For users in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada, news stories in Stocks are provided by Apple News. Apple collects information about how you use Apple News in Stocks. This information is linked to a random identifier specific to Apple News and Stocks that is not linked to other services. For more detail on the information we collect for Apple News, visit

Information about the subscriptions you purchase in Apple News with your Apple ID is used to ensure you can access your subscriptions in Stocks.

In order to deliver great content, Stocks is ad-supported. If the Personalized Ads setting is turned on, Apple’s advertising platform may use your information to serve ads that are more relevant to you. Turning off Personalized Ads will prevent Apple from using this information for ad targeting. It may not decrease the number of ads you receive, but the ads may be less relevant to you. On your iOS or iPadOS device, you can turn off Personalized Ads by going to Settings > Privacy > Apple Advertising and tapping to turn off Personalized Ads. On your Mac, go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy, click Privacy, select Apple Advertising, and deselect the Personalized Ads checkbox. The stories you read and listen to in Apple News and Stocks will be used only to send advertisements to you when you are in the Apple News or Stocks apps.

Stock quotes and data (and news stories about the stocks you follow for users outside the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada) are provided by partners who are required to treat the information in line with Apple’s requirements.

At all times, information collected by Apple will be treated in accordance with Apple’s Privacy Policy, which can be found at
