Here’s how to use Hide my Email in iOS 15

Apple’s upgraded cloud service, iCloud+, will be released alongside iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey next month. Along with major privacy updates including Mail Privacy Protection, Private Relay, the service also offers a feature called Hide my Email.

A version of Hide my Email has been available as part of the Sign In With Apple service over the last several years, but it includes a new layer of protection in iOS 15. Rather than having to Sign in With Apple, you can create different alias emails on your iPhone. You can submit these email addresses instead of your real email and get all your mail forwarded to your primary email address. Here’s how to hide your email address in iOS 15.
