Apple has announced a slew of new privacy features on Monday, including a new “sign in with Apple” capability.
The tool rivals similar sign-in buttons from Facebook and Google that are found on many websites or on apps. The Apple feature lets users provide select information, like name and e-mail address, that is guarded by the company’s Face ID 3D login system on iPhones and iPads.
Users will be able to choose which apps get what information. If users don’t want to provide their e-mail address to an app or website, Apple now offers “relay” addresses instead. These are randomised addresses that forward information from sites and apps to people’s real e-mail accounts. — Reported by Mark Gurman, (c) 2019 Bloomberg LP
