Apple iOS - how to stop ad tracking

From this article in Advertising Identifier: How to stop Apple's iOS6 from tracking your activity for advertisers.

Here’s how you fly under the iOS radar:

1. Press the Settings icon.
2. Scroll down and press “ General,” then “ About,” and then “Advertising.”
3. Turn “Limit Ad Tracking” on, so that it is, in fact, limiting the ad tracking.

Thank you!! I didn't know about that but it was easy to do, following the instructions you provided in your quote.
