Why do some member email addresses end in @privaterelay-appleid.com?

Modified on Wed, 08 Mar 2023 at 03:59 PM

When users choose to sign in through the Apple account, this user's username (email address) is shielded by Apple. To still be able to register an email address (e.g., to send an email to this user), an anonymous email address is created. This email address is then linked by Apple in its own databases to the user's actual email address.
