Impact of Upcoming iOS 14 Privacy Changes

Apple has announced changes in the upcoming release of iOS 14 that will have an impact on mobile advertisers and marketers:

  1. The IDFA (Identifier for Advertisers) will now require an opt in at the app level to be shared with advertisers and marketers to deliver targeted communications. This is a change from the previous opt out methodology. Users will be prompted with the following message:
  • Users will also have the ability in app settings to share general (10 mile radius) or precise location with a prompt as follows:

Porch Group Media’s Impact Assessment And Path Forward:

  • Porch Group Media has continually scaled our opt in location data throughout changes in the privacy landscape. While the iOS change certainly poses the latest challenge, Porch Group Media’s location data scale has grown 4-5x over the last few years based on sourcing diversification, and we typically see a 75-80% opt in rate to location data. Porch Group Media is committed to continually evolving our strategy and providing marketers and consumers with accurate data and high quality experiences in a privacy-compliant environment
  • We will further expand our sourcing to prioritize apps that have a strong reason to require precise location data. As we have always done, we will focus our sourcing on the highest quality apps that provide consumers value linked to precise location, and we will filter out approximate location values as appropriate
  • Porch Group Media’s broad data footprint, first party CDP, programmatic distribution and leadership in cookieless targeting put us in perfect position to support our clients as the identity economy changes. Consumers have now come to expect high quality experiences informed by data, while also requiring that their privacy is respected. As the methods and tactics of people-based targeting and addressability change, Porch Group Media is in a very strong position to help our clients maximize their opportunity:
    • Our broad consumer data catalog helps add context and depth to the understanding of each consumer, and our consumer phone and email databases provide a scaled footprint for identity resolution
    • As communicating to known first party customers and prospects becomes an even greater priority, Porch Group Media’s Velocity CDP provides a flexible and scalable platform to manage relationships
    • Porch Group Media is a leader in the programmatic data market, and our vast platform relationships allow us to get the right data to where it needs to be quickly and efficiently
    • Porch Group Media is leader in cookieless targeting, having launched Porch Group Media Signals for Auto as the first all-cookieless intent targeting dataset. We anticipate that all of our digitally addressable data will convert to cookieless over the next 2 years, and we will continue to evolve our location data as targeting and consumer privacy technology and requirements advance
