Just like ‘login with Google,’ ‘login with Facebook,’ Twitter, LinkedIn or any other social media site, you would now be able to quickly sign-up and log into third-party websites and apps using your Apple ID.
What’s the difference? Well, Apple claims that signing-in with Apple ID would protect users’ privacy by not only disclosing their actual email addresses to the 3rd-party services but by also limiting personal information to the minimum necessary data.
While announcing ‘Sign in with Apple’ today at WWDC, the company revealed that the feature has been designed to randomly generate a new unique email address for each different service a user sign-up with, and will forward all emails to your primary email ID, internally.
“It [randomly generate emails] is a smart jab against spam: Not only will you be able to turn off spammy email more easily, but you’ll also be able to see who exactly is sharing and selling your email widely when that random address starts to get spam from companies buying up data,” Gizmodo notes.
The feature will soon be available as an API for developers who want to integrate the single-sign-on button on their apps and websites, allowing their users to quickly and easily sign in “without tracking.”
