Siri & Personal Data

Siri uses a lot of personal data to provide its services, sending this data to Apple servers where algorithms work to help deliver answers and suggestions. They also can access data from your apps, if you permit it. Let's look at the data they access and the options you can control.


To change Siri access to individual apps:

  • General > Siri & Search (scroll to app list)
  • Click on any App name (recommended for financial and messaging apps)
    • Search & Siri Suggestions - OFF
    • Show App - ON (recommended) or OFF (if you want to hide the app name from being suggested on your screen)
