YOUR iPhone has an amazing trick that can save you from hacking – and it all comes with an alert.
Keep an eye out when using your iPhone and you can increase your online security very quickly.
The feature is called Sign in with Apple — and you may have used it before.
It appears when you surf the web, especially when you log into websites or apps for the first time.
It’s a way to log into websites with your Apple ID, and most importantly, you can hide your email address.
“Sign in with Apple is a fast, easy, and more private way to sign in to third-party apps and websites with the Apple ID you already have,” Apple said.
That means you don’t have to share your real email address or sign up with social media accounts.
This ultimately means that websites have less information about you, which also makes life harder for hackers.
Apple’s Hide My Email system is built right into Sign in with Apple.
It creates and shares a unique and random email address that forwards to your personal email.
So you can still be contacted by a website, but they don’t know your real email address.
Apple says its Sign In with Apple system also doesn’t track you when you use apps.
And the whole system is two-factor authenticated, so you can sign in with Face ID or Touch ID.
Sign in with Apple isn’t available everywhere.
But if it’s available, you’ll see it when you log into an app or website.
Setup takes just a few seconds and you sign in with Face ID or Touch ID on your iPhone.
If you don’t see a Sign in with Apple button, it means the app or website doesn’t support it yet.
Also, you cannot use the feature if you are under 13 years old.
Apple users can always verify their sign-in using Apple apps.
On iPhone, just go to Settings and then tap on your name.
Then go to Password & Security, then tap Apps using your Apple ID.
The system for signing in with Apple and hiding my email is about two years old, but many more sites are using it now.
So, it has never been easier to use the feature.
You can also stop signing in with your Apple ID at any time.
