Mobile Device Choices

As noted in the Supplemental Mobile Terms of Service and Privacy Policy and Oath Privacy Policy, we may use information collected about you to customize the ads you may see within apps you use on devices such as mobile phones or tablets.

You can opt out of receiving interest-based ads from ONE by AOL Advertising by following the instructions below. Please note that, in some instances, it may be necessary for you to provide your unique device ID in order to opt-out.

Apple Devices:

In Apple iOS6 and higher, companies can target advertising to mobile app users by using a unique identifier called the "Advertising Identifier." You can opt out of receiving such interest-based advertising from ONE by AOL Advertising by selecting "Limit Ad Tracking" in the iOS settings. When you choose to Limit Ad Tracking, ONE by AOL Advertising will not use your device's Advertising Identifier for ad targeting purposes.

For more information about these iOS options:

1. Open Settings
2. Select Privacy
3. Select Advertising and follow the on-screen instructions

Android Devices:

In Android devices with Google Play Services 4.0 and higher, companies can target advertising to mobile app users by using a unique identifier called the "Android Advertising Identifier." You can opt out of receiving such interest-based advertising from ONE by AOL Advertising by selecting "Opt out of Interest Based Ads." When you choose to opt-out, ONE by AOL Advertising will not use your device's Android Advertising Identifier for ad targeting purposes.

For more information about these Android options:

1. Open Settings
2. Select Google
3. Select Privacy
4. Select Ads and follow the on-screen instructions

Additional Choices and Controls:

To stop the collection of information by an Oath app, you can uninstall the app using the standard uninstall process available on your device or via the app marketplace or network from which you installed the app.

In addition, you can adjust your AOL Marketing Preferences to make choices about how your Oath information may be used to provide marketing offers to you across your devices when signed in to AOL services.

Verizon Wireless may insert a unique identifier in certain web traffic from your mobile device. This identifier, also known as a "UIDH," is used to deliver ads to your mobile device (through both the Verizon Relevant Mobile Advertising and Verizon Selects advertising programs). If you opt out of the Relevant Mobile Advertising and do not opt in to the Verizon Selects programs, Verizon will stop inserting the UIDH and Oath will no longer have access to this identifier. You have a choice about participating in the Verizon programs.


You can opt out of receiving interest-based ads from us when you browse the web by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance's consumer choice page and selecting “AOL Advertising,” “BrightRoll,” and “Yahoo Inc.”  If you are a registered user, you also must opt out of ads on Yahoo. Please note that your opt-out choice will apply only to the browser and device you are using when you opt out. You can make your choice apply to any browser and device you use while signed into AOL by adjusting your AOL Marketing Preferences.


Please note that by limiting ad tracking or opting out by way of any of the choices described, you will still see ads in the same places, but those ads may be less relevant because they will no longer be based on your interests. Due to the differences between using apps and websites on mobile devices, the options listed are specific only to Oath's practices within apps.

Apple devices running iOS versions before 6.0 and Android devices running Google Play Services earlier than 4.0 do not support platform-based privacy choices. For such devices, ONE by AOL Advertising provides an opt-out mechanism, below. Device identifiers from either platform (iOS or Android) submitted below will be opted-out of ONE by AOL Advertising's targeting processes.

To manage privacy preferences on other mobile devices, enter your device identifier and preference, below. Note that this page accepts case insensitive device identifiers in two formats: Android Id (16 character hexidecimal, such as 355018BC70BAAF96), and UDID (36 hexidecimal characters including dashes, such as 1E2AFA89-496A-47FD-9A41-DF1AC4E6434A).
