Apple announced a new “Sign in With Apple” privacy tool at WWDC 2019
Apple Introducing a new privacy “Sign in With Apple” feature with iOS13
Recently, at WWDC, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi said that “We believe privacy is a fundamental human right and we engineer it into everything that we do.” He announced many new features to protect your location data, as well as announced a new “Sign in With Apple” privacy tool. Sign In with Apple makes it easy for you to sign in to your apps and websites using your Apple ID. Instead of filling out forms, verifying email addresses, and choosing new passwords, you may use Sign In with Apple to configure an account and start using your app right away.
This new feature is really helpful to protect privacy from apps that ask for your email address, Apple can also now automatically create a random email address for all those services.
According to Federighi “This experience is meant to let you have control over your data.” With this new iOS 13, you will be able to put restrictions on location tracking. After giving an app permission to access your location data, you may require the app to ask for permission each time. Moreover, it also allows you to block location tracking from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Apple is always known for its high end ground privacy. Now, Apple’s version will be used to your iPhone or iPad to authenticate your credentials when you log in. It is very simple to use, all you need to do is tap to authenticate with Face ID without revealing any personal information about yourself.
With iOS13, Apple is introducing “Sign in with Apple” feature that allows you to sign into third-party services, just like you can do with Google and Facebook. The difference here is that there’s no data tracking at all with Sign in with Apple. While that, if services want you to enter your name and email, you may either allow them to have access or you may create a fake email address that forwards to your email. After updating your device to iOS 13, you will be able to sign in with Apple on all Apple platforms as well as on the web.
