It happens to everyone, suddenly looking for an e-mail while looking at a website. When I read what is written on the site, I was happy to send an e-mail. It’s only a matter of time before you get overwhelmed by spam e-mails. However, if you want to keep your personal e-mail ID private, there is no way to go to Apple. Apple actually provides another unique or reverse email ID to keep the email ID private. So that no one else can see the personal e-mail ID.
Apple changed iCloud plans to iCloud+ with iOS 15. iCloud+ comes with Private Relay and Hide My Email features to give its customers extra privacy. Now if you want to keep your personal email ID private, iCloud+ is a reliable solution.
Using Hide My Email on Apple iPhone will give you a dummy email ID that will work in place of the real ID and so you don’t have to share the real ID with anyone.
How does Hide My Email work?
First, make sure that your iPhone or iPad is running Apple’s iOS 15 or iPad OS 15 or later. Then open Settings app on iPhone or iPad. Now tap on the Apple ID name above the main settings menu and tap on Apple iCloud. Now you can go to hide my email option.
Here tap on the Create New Email option and give a label to the newly created email. A note can also be kept about it if desired. Now click on Next and Right. Now this newly generated random email id can be used to send email to someone.
If a reverse e-mail ID is used using Hide My E-mail, it can also be temporarily disabled if necessary. For this, you need to launch Settings app on iPhone or iPad. Now tap on the Apple ID found above the main settings menu to open iCloud. Then click on iCloud and tap on Hide My Email to see a list. After that tap on the e-mail ID that needs to be deactivated from that list. And the mail sent to that e-mail address will not get a chance to disturb.
