Never ignore Apple’s new warning on your iPhone – it can save you from attacks

APPLE has a special feature that allows you to protect your privacy – and potentially avoid hacking attacks.

It works using pop-ups that you will see occasionally when browsing the web.

Watch out for this pop-up on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac

The feature is called Sign in with Apple – and you probably already use it.

It’s a way to sign in to websites with your Apple ID and, importantly, lets you hide your email.

“Signing in with Apple is a faster, easier, and more private way to sign in to third-party apps and websites with the Apple ID you already have,” explains Apple.

This means you don’t have to share your real email or log in with social media accounts.

That ultimately means websites have less information about you, which makes life harder for hackers as well.

Apple’s Hide My Email system is directly integrated for Sign in with Apple.

It generates and shares a random and unique email address that will forward to your personal email.

So you can still be contacted by the website but they won’t know your real email address.

Apple says its Sign in with Apple system also won’t track you as you use the apps.

And the whole system is two-factor authentication so you can sign in with Face ID or Touch ID.

Sadly, the Sign in with Apple feature isn’t available everywhere.

But if it’s available, you’ll see it pop up on an app or website when you sign up.

It only takes a few seconds to set up, and you sign in with Face ID or Touch ID on your iPhone.

If you don’t see a Sign in with Apple button, that means the app or website doesn’t support it yet.

You also cannot use this feature if you are under 13 years old.

Apple users can check their Sign In with Apple apps at any time.

On an iPhone, that means go to Settings and then tap your name.

Then go to Passwords & Security and tap Apps Use Your Apple ID.

The Sign In with Apple and Hide My Email system is about two years old, but more websites use it now.

So using this feature has never been easier.

You can also stop using your Apple ID to sign in at any time.
