In iOS 12, Apple Safari has added many new features, most of which have their own unique way to keep you safe online.

With iOS 12, Apple Enhances Advanced Intelligence Tracking Prevention Introduced in Safari in iOS 11 Users Can not See "Like" Fields While Surfing the Internet Share "and" Comment "when logged in to these services. It's less messy that gets in the way of the content that's important to you, but above all, it offers you better protection when surfing the internet on the iPhone.

On the Internet, fingerprinting is a way for trackers to create a profile of their iPhone based on the browser data and system configuration information collected from their device. This process is the antithesis to the privacy of the Internet, as trackers can use this profile of your iPhone to know exactly who you are when you access a web page.
Apple wants to fight this practice as much as you do. With iOS 12, the company claims to have implemented in Safari to prevent device fingerprints:
• Show a simplified version of your system configuration so that more devices look the same as Tracker.
• Show only the list of built-in fonts, so custom fonts can not be used as unique identifiers.
• Legacy plug-ins are no longer supported, so they can not be used to identify you.
The result is a similar, if not identical, browsing experience for you, while the ability for trackers to uniquely identify your device is greatly reduced, while websites can provide content based on your device specifications.
Favicons are the official name for the tabs that you see when you use a website. These icons were previously available in other iOS web browsers such as Chrome and Firefox, but with iOS 12, Apple has also added the functionality to Safari.
