IOS Updates and Swagbucks Earning Opportunities: Action Required

If you’re up to date on your tech news, you know that iOS 14.5 was released by Apple this week. By default, Apple is automatically blocking ad-tracking which is an important part of your ability to earn on our site and mobile apps!

What does this mean for Swagbucks?

Well, we want to make sure you continue to earn SB on your mobile device for all offers completed without any issues. This will require you to do the following steps to ensure all activity tracks properly:

1. Open “Settings” on your  iPhone and/or iPad

2. Find the “Privacy” section and click on it

3. Click “Tracking”

4. Enable “Allow Apps to Request to Track” by toggling the button on

5.  In order to be eligible to earn when downloading any mobile app offers via Swagbucks, you must select allow when presented with the prompt, “Allow (APP NAME) to track your activity across other companies’ apps and websites.” If you do not allow activity tracking, you will be ineligible for awarding.

As a reminder, this change only applies to iOS mobile devices, not Android devices.
