The New York Times, IFTTT, Medium, and Other Apps Adopt Sign in With Apple Ahead of June 30 Deadline

Apps with sign-in functionality, including The New York Times, IFTTT, Medium, and more, have continued to adopt Apple’s secure Sign in with Apple feature ahead of a deadline of June 30. The deadline for these apps to support the feature was recently extended from April 30.

‌Sign in with Apple‌, first introduced in iOS 13, allows users to create accounts for apps and websites using an Apple ID. It also lets users to select specific data he or she would like to share with an app and even allows users to mask their email addresses.

The feature has been largely welcomed as a more secure alternative to similar sign-in services since it authenticates the user with Face ID or Touch ID and doesn’t send personal information to app and website developers.

MacRumors forum member Pedro Marques has compiled a list of other apps currently supporting ‌Sign in with Apple‌. Be sure to check out our Sign in with Apple guide to learn more about the feature and how it works.

Apple users, it’s been a big week for Sign In With Apple. Apps like Medium, IFTTT, NYTimes, Strava, Ritual, Freshii, Fiverr and dozens more now offering the privacy of Apple’s anonymous sign in method. I was able to drop Facebook logins entirely. No more tracking me Zuckerberg!
