The latest version of the iPhone operating system, iOS 15, has new privacy features for people who pay for iCloud storage.

One of the more useful new features is the ability to create a temporary email address, an email address that is not linked to your identity but that forwards messages to your inbox. It’s called “Hide my email.”

These recording emails are good for signing up for forms on the web that you may not want to share your primary email address with, Apple he said when he announced the show in June. Users can activate as many recording email addresses as they need and delete them when convenient.

However, there is a problem: users have to pay for iCloud storage. Hide My Email is part of iCloud +, a new set of privacy features for people who pay Apple for iCloud storage.

Is that how it works:

Create a new email address

  • Make sure you are subscribed to get additional iCloud storage. Hide My Mail works with any iCloud subscription, even the 50GB plan that costs $ 0.99 per month.
  • Launch the setup application. It’s the one that looks like gears.
  • Touch your Apple ID name at the top of the screen.
  • Touch iCloud; it should say what storage plan you are next to it on.
  • Touch Hide my email.
  • Tap Create new address.
  • Fill in the form – You can assign a label to each burner email and request a different randomly generated burner email address.
  • When you are done creating the email, you can use it anywhere and it will forward the messages to your Apple ID email account.

Change forwarding address

  • If you want to forward recording emails emails to another email address, it’s easy too.
  • Launch the setup application.
  • Touch your Apple ID at the top of the screen.
  • Tap iCloud and then Hide my email.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the screen. You should see a box called “Forward to”.
  • You may need to set up a new email address in your iCloud account; you can’t just enter just any email address.
