Have an iPhone? Try the “Hide My Email” feature

The rollout of iOS 15 included a new security capability for iPhone users: The ability to hide your email address from sites and services you register with online. In essence, this feature creates a random email address to use in place of your actual address. In doing, you gain a little more control over the companies – or malicious third parties – that have access to your real account. Here’s how to turn it on:

  • Go to Settings.
  • Choose iCloud.
  • Select Hide My Email.
