Sign In with Apple
Apple is building in protections for privacy, such as having apps ask you just once for your location, like authenticate a user using Face ID on their iPhone without using any of their personal data to a third-party company. If an app requests your name and email address, Apple will let you create an anonymous random email address that forwards to your real email. And each app can have their own random email address, making it easier to weed out the apps you don’t want troubling your inbox.
