The New York Times, IFTTT, Medium, and Other Apps Adopt Sign in With Apple Ahead of June 30 Deadline

Apps with sign-in functionality, including The New York Times, IFTTT, Medium, and more, have continued to adopt Apple's secure Sign in with Apple feature ahead of a deadline of June 30. The deadline for these apps to support the feature was recently extended from April 30.

Sign in with Apple, first introduced in iOS 13, allows users to create accounts for apps and websites using an Apple ID. It also lets users to select specific data he or she would like to share with an app and even allows users to mask their email addresses.

The feature has been largely welcomed as a more secure alternative to similar sign-in services since it authenticates the user with Face ID or Touch ID and doesn't send personal information to app and website developers.

MacRumors forum member Pedro Marques has compiled a list of other apps currently supporting Sign in with Apple. Be sure to check out our Sign in with Apple guide to learn more about the feature and how it works.

It's not working properly though. Accounts are setup with the random email generated by Apple, which is supposed to be a placeholder for my regular email.
That’s how it’s supposed to work. The whole point is to not give third parties your real email. If your real email is reflected in the app, then they have your real email.

When you Sign In with Apple, your email and other user names and passwords are irrelevant. It’s a one button operation. Hit Sign In with Apple, it authenticates you via Face or Touch ID and you’re in. The email they have for you is irrelevant. What matters is that if they want to contact you, they’ll email that relay email and you’ll receive it at your real email.

If you want them to stop bothering you, just turn off emails in the Apple ID settings. If you want to delete your account entirely, you don’t have to jump through hoops on their app. Just delete the app from your Signed in with Apple apps and your account is cleared along with their ability to contact you.

GOOD! Because every time I see "Sign Up With Google" (or Facebook) on any new website account.... I cringe.

Google and FB are some of the worst data privacy offenders. Why on earth would I want them to be the steward and gatekeeper of my various website/internet accounts?

I’d trust Google and FB (and Amazon and Apple) to authenticate logins for me 100x more than I’d trust any business outside of the tech industry To protect my login details against hacks.

It’s in Google and FB’s best interest to keep your account secure. To prevent unauthorized access to your data.

There are legitimate reasons to hate on them, but both companies have an absolutely proven track record of being serious about security. We have to give credit where credit is due.
All have had numerous breaches, Facebook especially has a truly awful track record. I'm sick of the "well spend hours to give me extensive proof or else your wrong" culture so I'm not going to go through the effort, but if you do some research its been pretty bad. If you're gonna sell your digital soul to one go Apple-Google-Amazon just please, please, don't believe Facebook of all companies has your digital security as the first priority.

Note that it's sign up with Apple. I bet you can't convert.


NY Times caused a big problem for me. I used the feature during the subscription process and it created an account under the random string Apple passes to them rather than my own email address.

NY Times support is completely incompetent. They have no idea why the accounts aren't being established or linked properly.
I thinkthats working exactly as designed...the whole point is to prevent the site from getting your info, isn't it?

I used Sign In with Apple for Tiktok but this app only lets you use its fully functionality (sending messages) when you also enter your phone number which is a sneaky way to circumvent apples privacy features.

Hi! Can anyone tell me if any sites I am already signed in with FB or Google can be switched to Apple? Or once you are registered it’s over and must stick to one method ?
I’ve been replacing my Facebook logins for months as apps added Sign In With Apple and managed to complete my list with the latest wave of additions. I have nothing logged in via Facebook and it feels good.

Here’s a good place to start:

https://m.facebook.com/settings/apps/tabbed/

This will show you every app and site you’re logged into via Facebook. Go into each app, log out and if there’s a Sign In With Apple button, you can typically replace the Facebook login if your Apple ID is the same email as your Facebook account. You’ll just have to forgo the hidden email feature.

Once you’ve logged in via Apple, you can delete the Facebook link in that same app list on Facebook.
