Analysis Suggests Instagram Tracks User Web Activity Through In-App Browser - MacRumors

iOS Privacy: Instagram and Facebook can track anything you do on any website in their in-app browser · Felix Krause

The iOS Instagram and Facebook app render all third party links and ads within their app using a custom in-app browser

The Instagram app injects their tracking code into every website shown, including when clicking on ads, enabling them monitor all user interactions, like every button & link tapped, text selections, screenshots, as well as any form inputs, like passwords, addresses and credit card numbers.

Instagram is purposely working around the App Tracking Transparency permission system, which was designed to prevent this exact type of data collection.

with javascript anything is possible !
