EU Apple Users Can Now Download All the Info It Has on Them

Users can finally know what Apple Inc. (AAPL) knows about them. 

Apple launched its privacy portal Wednesday in compliance with the EU's new data privacy rules known as GDPR. 

Apple customers can now request all of the personal data that Apple holds, including sign-in history, contacts, calendar, notes, photos and documents. Information from its services like Apple Music, the App Store, iTunes and Apple Care. 

The data is not available instantaneously, however, and could take up to two weeks to be assembled. 

To access the information users have to log into their accounts and go to the company's privacy page. Users can select the size of their data downloads up to 25GB or smaller increments. 

The data service will initially be available in the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, but the company has plans to expand the service worldwide later this year. 

A holding in Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio, Apple shares were up 0.2% in afternoon trading Wednesday.
