Earlier yesterday Apple announced that soon users will be able to sign into different apps and websites using Apple ID. While many saw the latest feature to be a direct shot at Facebook and Google, Apple defended the addition as a better alterative with improved security and privacy. And now, it seems that apps which use third party sign-in option will be forced to use the Apple ID option from later this fall.
In a recent update to its App Store review guidelines, Apple states, “Sign In with Apple will be available for beta testing this summer. It will be required as an option for users in apps that support third-party sign-in when it is commercially available later this year.”
During the announcement, Apple said that the upcoming feature will be more secured for users. It won’t be sharing any personal data with the app vendor unlike the third-party sign-up options. Moreover, in case you decide to sign up using Apple ID, it’ll create a fake email address in case you want to hide your original email. Each of the apps will get its own fake email addresses which will be forwarded to your original email address. The feature is scheduled to go live later this fall.
