What is Sign in with Apple?

Sign in with Apple is the fast, easy and more private way to sign in to third-party apps and websites using the Apple ID that you already have.

About Sign in with Apple

When you see a Sign in with Apple button on a participating app or website, it means you can set up an account using your Apple ID. No need to use a social media account, fill in forms or choose another new password. 

Sign in with Apple is built from the ground up to respect your privacy and keep you in control of your personal information. It works natively on iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS, and in any browser.

Privacy and security

  • At your first sign-in, apps and websites can only ask for your name and email address to set up an account for you. 
  • You can use Hide My Email – Apple's private email relay service – to create and share a unique, random email address that forwards to your personal email. This lets you receive useful messages from the app without sharing your personal email address. Find out more about how Hide My Email works.
  • Sign in with Apple won’t track or profile you as you use your favourite apps and websites. Apple retains only the information that’s needed to make sure you can sign in and manage your account.
