Is Sign in with Apple flawed?


I’ve recently started shifting all my accounts to Apple’s SSO approach. But, as I started going through my many accounts, I quickly realised that many of them were using hidden emails using the Hide My Email functionality from iCloud.

It got me thinking that there’s a massive flaw in Apple’s SSO in that you can’t regenerate your random email. If, for example, you start receiving spam from a website because they’ve been compromised, your only option is to delete your account and sign up again or stop forwarding the emails, which isn’t an option if you still need to receive emails from the website.

On the other hand, Hide My Email allows you to generate a new email whenever you want, so you could log into the website and update your email address, and you’d stop receiving spam and have full access to all emails.

What do you guys think? Am I missing something? I think it might be worthwhile using Hide My Email instead.
