Make signing in easy.

Provide a fast, secure, and privacy-friendly way for users to set up an account and start using your apps and websites.

Planning

Sign In with Apple allows you to set up a user account in your system, complete with name, verified email address, and unique stable identifiers that allow the user to sign in to your app with their Apple ID. It works on iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. You can also add Sign In with Apple to your website or versions of your app running on other platforms. Once a user sets up their account, they can sign in anywhere you deploy your app.

Examples of Use Cases

With Sign In with Apple, it’s easy to:

  • Allow users to create an account early in your app experience if your app has limited functionality without an account.
  • Allow users to create an account after interacting with features of your app. For example, to save progress or set up a profile.
  • Allow users to create an account after completing a purchase as a guest.
  • Allow users with existing accounts to sign in or reauthenticate to any version of your app or website.
