iPhone users opting out of app tracking are still being tracked by Facebook and Snapchat (report)

With the release of iOS 14.5, Apple gave iPhone owners the ability to opt out of app tracking to avoid companies sharing your data for ad tracking purposes, a major profit center for social media apps like Facebook. 

Unsurprisingly, many of these companies complained about the move and, according to a new report from the Financial Times, Facebook and Snapchat are among those finding ways to work around the new policy to still deliver your data to advertisers (via 9to5Mac).
