How to Use Hide My Email on iOS

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

In this podcast from his series looking at some of what's new and notable in iOS 15, Thomas Domville introduces us toHide My Email.

Available to iCloud+ subscribers, Hide My Email builds on the idea of Sign in With Apple by providing you with unique, random email addresses that forward to your personal inbox and can be deleted at any time. This can be particularly useful if you need to give a company an email address, but are concerned that they will share the address with others who will use it for advertising purposes.

Hey, I just wanted to say a huge thanks for putting these together, It sounds like you are kind of enjoying doing them but its a lot of work. I just wanted you to know how helpful the demo’s are. I’m sure I’m not the only one enjoying and getting a lot from them. Thanks.

Hi, Thomas!

First, I want to echo Andy's sentiments. Thank you for doing these. I'm getting them all now, so, that when I do upgrade, I'll have them to refresh. And, now, I'll have them to listen to in preparation. :-)

So, I do have a question.

So, I recently turned on 2FA. for my Apple account since you can use the one device you have as primary. So, I know one of the advantages of having this on, is the ability to sign-in with Apple. Here's how I understand that works.

You sign-in or make an account an app will get an email address that's tied to your Apple ID.
If I'm wrong correct me.

Questions are:

1. Does this mean that sig-in with Apple will be available to Icloud+ members?
2. How does this differ from sign-in with Apple?

Again, thank you for doing these!
Thanks for your help! :-)
