  4. Inside, look for an option called Ads. And tap on that.

  6. But wait! You need to tap on the Reset advertising ID too. Do you remember the profile I talked about in the start? The one which keeps all your browsing patterns and what not? This option will erase all of that and assign you a new advertising ID. As you have already opted out of location based ads, it won’t matter much.
