Anyone using Apple's Private Relay?

I've never looked into it until today, as it's part of the paid version of iCloud (I've stuck with the free 5Gb all these years). But a business partner is overly sensitive about using any website that uses cookies, and I'm looking for a solution (probably Chrome with one of its cookie-deleting extensions).

But it got me wondering about Private Relay. Anyone using it?

Comes on automatically - and gets shut off by AT&T and others.

This visibility into how my internet traffic is being monitored and stored is interesting and good for consumers.

When Apple offers a true integrated VPN that cannot be overruled, I'll be all-in.

Interesting. Sounds like it's still pretty beta then, if major carriers are blocking it.

I guess this is not the same as a Private window in FFx or the like?
Or auto cookie delete in FFx?

Fritz, I'd never really checked out FireFox. Is the feature you're referring to the one shown here in this screenshot? I like that it looks like you can have all cookies immediately delete except for say your bank account or whatever else you want to not have to re-enter settings each time.

yes. that's it. There were a couple things I fkd up, but it seems to work rather well.
banks, cc's, finance, couple forums, health care portals.
I have perhaps 18 that I keep.
one bank has been defiant. annoying. I've tried several addresses, so far none work right.
