Today, like us, many of you may continue to encounter numerous issues while using these apps. One of the most common concerns, for example, is the “Need to acknowledge Apple’s Apple ID and Privacy statement“.
So, how can this be resolved? We’ll work together to find the best solution.
When Does The Problem “Need to acknowledge Apple’s Apple ID and Privacy statement” Occur?
This is most likely not a bug but rather a case of Apple throwing an incorrect error message.
You are afraid to convert my account to 2FA to confirm what you suspect (that Apple is just giving the wrong error message when blocking accounts without 2FA).
You had a build agent/continuous integration Apple developer account that you were using to build apps. Still, it did not have the upgraded two-factor security that Apple mandated for all accounts beginning in February. Despite Apple’s message that you would be “required” to upgrade security, you can still log into App Store Connect, developer.apple.com, appleid.apple.com, and other sites without upgrading security.
However, when you use any command on Fastlane that logs into Apple with this account, you receive the following error:
Need to acknowledge to Apple's Apple ID and Privacy statement. Please manually log into https://appleid.apple.com (or https://appstoreconnect.apple.com) to acknowledge the statement.
Some Main Methods For The Issue “Need to acknowledge Apple’s Apple ID and Privacy statement”
And, believe it or not, you might be able to solve this with some simple solutions.
As defined in the error message, it is misleading because it is not related to accepting some new Policies but rather to the new authentication system used by the app store connect API, as we describe.
This solution may be ideal for you.
You can authenticate and authorize the fast lane actions using an Apple account. Changing the CI to use an Apple API key appears to have resolved the problem. App store connect API key should be used by Fastlane.
If you’re still stuck on the issue “Need to acknowledge Apple’s Apple ID and Privacy statement“, the solutions listed above are the quickest.
