Sign in with Apple on iPad
With Sign in with Apple, you can sign in to participating apps and websites with your Apple ID. You don’t need to create and remember new passwords, and your account is protected with two-factor authentication.
Sign in with Apple is designed to respect your privacy. Apps and websites can ask only for your name and email address to set up your account, and Apple won’t track you as you use them.
Set up or upgrade an account to Sign in with Apple
When a participating app or website asks you to set up or upgrade an account, do the following:
Tap Sign in with Apple.
Follow the onscreen instructions.
Some apps (and websites) don’t request your name and email address. In this case, you simply authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID (depending on your model), then start using the app.
Others may ask for your name and email address to set up a personalized account. When an app asks for this information, Sign in with Apple displays your name and the personal email address from your Apple ID account for you to review.
To edit your name, tap it, then use the keyboard to make changes.
To specify an email address, do one of the following:
Use your personal email address: Tap Share My Email.
If you have multiple email addresses associated with your Apple ID, choose the address you want.
Hide your email address: Tap Hide My Email.
This option allows you to receive email from the app without sharing your personal email address. When you choose this option, Apple creates a unique, random email address for you, and any email sent from the app to this address is forwarded to your personal address.
After you review your information and choose an email option, tap Continue, authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID (depending on your model), then start using the app.
Sign in to access your account
After you set up an account with an app or website using Sign in with Apple, you typically don’t need to sign in to it again on your iPad. But if you’re asked to sign in (for example, after you sign out of an account), do the following:
Tap Sign in with Apple.
Review the Apple ID that appears, then tap Continue.
Authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID (depending on your model).
Change the address used to forward email
If you chose to hide your email address when you created an account and you have more than one address associated with your Apple ID, you can change the address that receives your forwarded email.
Go to Settings > [your name] > Name, Phone Numbers, Email > Forward To.
Choose a different email address, then tap Done.
Change Sign in with Apple settings for an app or website
Go to Settings > [your name] > Password and Security.
Tap Apps Using Your Apple ID.
Choose an app, then do either of the following:
Turn off forwarding email: Turn off Forward To. You won’t receive any further emails from the app.
Stop using Sign in with Apple: Tap Stop Using Apple ID. You may be asked to create a new account the next time you try to sign in with the app.
Sign in with Apple also works on your other devices—iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac, Apple TV, and iPod touch—where you’re signed in with the same Apple ID.
To sign in from an Android app, a Windows app, or any web browser, tap Sign in with Apple, then enter your Apple ID and password.
Sign in with Apple requires two-factor authentication for your Apple ID. This protects your Apple ID, your app accounts, and your app content. For information about how two-factor authentication works, see the Apple Support article Two-factor authentication for Apple ID.
