How does Advertising ID work?

Every smartphone has this so-called device identifier for advertisers or Google advertising ID. Using this information, advertisers are able to track user ad activities on any Android devices anonymously. 

The Google advertising ID does something similar as third-party cookies do as it helps advertisers know when an ad has been viewed or clicked in an application.

Without an advertising ID, apps won’t be able to use any unique reference to show personalized ads on your device. However, some apps may still be able to show ads but are no longer relevant or interesting to you.

The type of ads you see may vary depending on individual app settings.

Getting a New Advertising ID

Your phone also allows you to get a new advertising ID in case you would change your mind and opt to receive ads that are more relevant to you. 

Should you wish to get a new advertising ID later, just repeat the same steps to head back to the Ads settings menu then tap Get new advertising ID. Read the pop-up message then tap Confirm to proceed.

After confirming, your device will be assigned with a new advertising ID that apps can use to render you personalized and relevant ads that help support free content and services.

Note:

  • The Get new advertising ID option only appears on devices with advertising ID deleted.

And that’s how to remove the advertising ID on the new Galaxy Z Flip 4 device.
