We use our email addresses for so many things these days. This makes it important to strive to apply privacy best practices whenever feasible. While some individuals have a backup email to use with people/organizations who may not be as careful with it, keeping multiple details may be difficult. Hide My Email on iOS 15 allows you to bypass this step by issuing you a randomly generated email address. These generated emails automatically forward all messages to your actual account. Isn’t that cool? Well, here’s a new way to utilize this feature in Apple’s Mail app.

  • Send your email as usual. When you enter a recipient’s email address in the To: field, the Mail app will produce a random forwarding email. When you’re finished, press the Send button.

The address generated by Hide My Email will then be preserved in your settings with the recipient as the label. If you contact that person or organization again in the future, simply hit Hide My Email again. By doing this, the system will pull in the previously used forwarding email.

Please keep in mind that Hide My Email’s random email generation is only available when there is a single recipient.

How to Deactivate/Turn-Off Hide My Email Forwarding

One excellent feature of utilizing Hide My Email with the Mail app is the ability to disable mail forwarding on a per-address basis.

As a result, if you no longer want a certain individual to be able to contact you, a firm is sending you too many emails, or a data breach has resulted in your randomly-generated email address being on some spammer’s list, you may remove that email address. This is how.

  • Go to Settings.
