This story is part of Apple event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple doesn’t like email spam any more than you do, and on Mondays at WWDC 2021, the tech giant unveiled a trio of new privacy-focused services for iCloud users called iCloud Plus. Included in the premium upgrade is a new way to increase the privacy of your email inbox and keep spam at bay.

Hide My Email, Apple’s new feature, aims to reduce the amount of spam in your email inbox by letting you generate random email addresses when you fill out an online form or sign up for a website, so you don’t always have to provide your real address.

In fact, you are clambering your spurs. We’ll show you how Hide My Email works. We will continue to update this story as we get more details from Apple.

How Hide My Email protects you from unwanted spam

Apple’s new Hide My Email feature lets you generate random, unique email addresses when you need to enter your email address on a website. It will then forward email to your actual inbox, while reducing the number of lists your legitimate email address appears on.

With Hide My Email, you can create and delete as many addresses as you need at any time, giving you more control over who can contact you. This is similar to Log in with Apple, which uses your iOS device to verify your credentials, rather than your social account logins, which could leave you vulnerable to being tracked online.

Hide My Email helps you keep track of all the random email addresses you generate.

Here’s how it seems to work, based on the WWDC presentation: When you reach a field online where you need to enter your email address, you can tap and tap the field Hide my email. A box with a random email address will appear so you can add a note so you remember what you’re using it for. When you’re done, tap Use. To manage these email addresses, go to iCloud > Hide My Email, and you can see a full list.

Where does Hide My Email work and when will it arrive?

Hide My Email is built right into Safari, Mail, and iCloud settings. It’s coming as part of the fall software update to: iOS 15, iPad 15, macOS Monterey and iCloud.com.
