macOS Ventura might not offer ‘Hide My Email’ support for third-party apps

Apple is going to release macOS Ventura to the public this fall, along with iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and other software updates. It appears that Apple has removed the support for the “Hide My Email” feature for third-party apps from the upcoming macOS Venture.

Built into “Sign in with Apple” and iCloud+, the Hide My Email is a privacy feature that protects users’ email addresses by generating unique random email addresses for apps, and websites.

Apple might have shelved the ‘Hide My Email’ support for third-party apps from macOS Ventura

Until August 3, macOS Venture’s features page listed “Hide My Email” support for third-party apps and web browsers. MacGeneration spotted that it has been removed.

Even the support page for ‘Hide My Email’ still mentions its compatibility with third-party apps or websites. However, it is not unusual for Apple to gradually roll out changes across its sites.

There are two key ways to use Hide My Email: With Sign in with Apple, which lets you create an account using a randomly-generated email address directly within a supported third-party app or website. Or with iCloud+, which lets you generate as many random email addresses as you need on your device, in Safari, or on iCloud.com, which you can use for whatever site or purpose you choose.

It is unclear what prompted the decision and if the feature’s support for third-party apps and web browsers has been delayed or permanently removed and will only be available on Apple’s native services like Mail, Safari, and iCloud+.
