iCloud+ Private Relay feature won’t be available in the Philippines and other selected countries, according to Apple.

Apple recently confirmed that the iCloud+ Private Relay feature won’t be available in the Philippines and other selected countries.

iCloud+Private Relay feature

Recently, Apple hosted this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) and one of the updates Apple unveiled was the iCloud+. The said feature may give users new privacy features such as Hide My Email and Private Relay features.

Based on a report on 9to5Mac, Private Relay technology helped obscure a user’s web browsing.

Apple had confirmed in a statement to Reuters that the said feature will not be available in selected countries — including the Philippines.

According to Apple, Private Relay will not be available in the Philippines, China, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Egypt, Turkmenistan, and Uganda when it officially launched to the public later this year.

Based on a report, Apple attributed those limitations to regulatory reasons. In addition, Apple said that Private Relay was a feature designed to give users another layer of privacy when browsing the web.

All the user’s requests are then sent through two separate internet relays. The first assigns the user an anonymous IP address that maps to their region but not their actual location. The second decrypts the web address they want to visit and forwards them to their destination. This separation of information protects the user’s privacy because no single entity can identify both who a user is and which sites they visit,” Apple explained.

According to Reuters, the first relay was sent through a server maintained by Apple and the second was a third-party operator. Apple hasn’t said which third-party operator it was using, but Reuters said that the company will disclose the details sometime in the future.
