A number of big name services have added their support for Apple’s privacy-conscious “Sign in with Apple” feature by integrating it into their apps. These include The New York Times, IFTTT, Medium, Strava, Ritual, Freshii, Fiverr, and more.
It shows how rapidly adoption of the service is increasing ahead of Apple’s June 30 deadline for apps to implement the feature. This deadline was recently pushed back from April 30.
“Sign in with Apple” was introduced as a feature in iOS 13. It stops third-party apps and web services from tracking users via their logins. It does this by creating private, disposable logins for every service or app.
Under Apple’s guidelines, all iOS applications that support third-party login methods, such as Facebook and Google, must support “Sign in with Apple.” Apple’s iOS human interface guidelines also recommend that developers position the “Sign in with Apple” option above other login methods.
MacRumors was the first website to share the news about the new “Sign in with Apple” support.
Apple users, it’s been a big week for Sign In With Apple. Apps like Medium, IFTTT, NYTimes, Strava, Ritual, Freshii, Fiverr and dozens more now offering the privacy of Apple’s anonymous sign in method. I was able to drop Facebook logins entirely. No more tracking me Zuckerberg!
