Poland has become another country to investigate Apple’s privacy policy. The company is now facing an investigation from the local antimonopoly regulator UOKiK over the possible violation of antitrust law.

The regulator claimed that Apple’s privacy policy adopted after the release of iOS 14.5 made it harder for app developers to collect personal data and target users, Reuters reported.

“We want to examine whether Apple’s actions may be aimed at eliminating competitors in the market for personalized advertising services, the objective being to better sell their own service,” UOKiK president Tomasz Chrostny said. “We will investigate whether this is a case of exclusionary abuse of market power.”

Regulators from the Netherlands, Russia, and other countries have already raised similar concerns regarding Apple’s behavior. The company recently sued Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service over its warning to allow third-party payment services. Not to mention the South Korean “Anti-Google law” passed in August.
