    That was a very confusing read. I had to read it twice to see if I was doing it right.

    So it is set as "off" as the default....but that means that the it allows he ad tracker to track things.

    Here's what Apple has to say about add tracking if you click on the learn more link at the bottom of the add tracking page in settings. Notice it doesn't explain how to properly turn off add tracking.

    Limit ad tracking on means to limit ad tracking.

    Limit ad tracking off means to not limit ad tracking.

    Right?

    That is a confusing article. There are seemingly conflicting statements made.

    Basically, the Apple default is to track, so change to the opposite to not track.

    According to this article, the default is to not track.

    This is what I read on the article:

    If you go on to download an app, the ad server can see what led you to that download, something which was impossible to track previously. There’s no personally-identifiable data, but the fact that Apple has it turned on by default might frustrate or upset some privacy advocates.

    Maybe this will help clarify:

    Apple brings back ad tracking in iOS 6, how to turn it off | News | TechRadar

    From that link:

    To opt out, users can go into their devices Settings and choose the "General" then "About" menu options to find the "Advertising" settings. From there, users will see the confusing "Limit Ad Tracking" option, which is set to be off by default.

    When off, the device will not limit ad tracking, or in plain English, it will allow ad tracking. By turning "Limit Ad Tracking" on, users can disable their IDFA number.

    Thanks, Kaykaykay--glad to get clarification. Seems like I wasn't the only one that had difficulty understanding this!

    The feature i love the most in IOS6 is the multiple mail signatures for the different mail accounts. No I no longer have to modify my rather lengthy businesses signature to a more sensible on each time I send a private mail.
