Sign In with Apple feature is also a major privacy-protecting change, offering up a convenient way to sign into apps and websites. It basically adds one more button like “Sign in with Facebook” & “Sign in Google“. It is a better and more secure way to login into different applications.

Apple ID authenticates your account with TouchID or FaceID, and apps are even able to generate single-use randomized email addresses so developers and companies never get your real info. Apple is really focusing on data security with all the data related incidents happening over the past 2 or 3 years.
