1. For a long time now I’ve refused to use apps and websites that force me to sign in with a social media account and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.
    I understand that some apps/sites need to create an account but I don’t believe they need access to my social media accounts to do this. I also believe a lot of developers are not doing this primarily to gain access to our social media accounts but to make it simple for users to signup.
    “Sign in with Apple” should be great for both consumers and developers. It makes the signup process simple for users without exposing personal information and it still gives developers an ID they can hang their data on and contact info to keep in touch with the user.
    What’s great is Apple is making this a requirement for apps that offer third-party sign-ups so we should see this spread pretty quickly and appear as an additional option to using your social media accounts when signing up.
    Know one knows Apple’s true intentions behind this new feature but they have given us another option when it comes to signing up and that can only be a good thing.
    If there are many people like me that don’t like signing up with social media accounts then this may have some sort of very minor effect on social networks but I can’t see it changing the status quo.

  2. They really are moving privacy forward, I have to applaud them, in spite of their odd hardware choices. I think it’s great that there is finally a third, better option. Who had the monopoly again? It wasn’t Apple, those damn buttons from Google and Facebook, and their accompanying spyware have been polluting the internet for years and years.
