Carrier IQ: How to Disable Tracking on Your iPhone

Friday, December 2nd, 2011 | Business | 3 Comments

There has been a lot of news surrounding Carrier IQ recently.

Is Carrier IQ on your iPhone?  Yes.

Apple has said that it’s not on every device, and while that might be true, it’s probably running for a lot of us.  If you have Diagnostics & Usage turned on, then it is running on your iPhone (that’s how Apple dances around it, iOS 5 asks if you want to turn it on).

iPhone: Disable Carrier IQHow do you turn off Carrier IQ?  It’s very easy on the iPhone:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Go to Location Services
  3. Scroll to the bottom and go to System Services
  4. Turn Diagnostics & Usage off
It sucks that Carrier IQ is on our iPhones, but it’s nice that we can turn it off
