Hiding your email address is easy if you don’t care about security and you do not mind giving away information. But if you want to know whether anyone knows that you use Hide My Email, you might have to take the plunge and jailbreak your iPhone.
What is the easiest way to hide my email on iPhone?
iPhone users want to know how to hide their email account information on the device because of a number of reasons.
First, by default, your email address is shown to all apps when you get a notification. If someone wants to send you an email message, you can easily do it if they know your email address.
In the iOS 13 release, Apple is rolling out an email and message app called Reminders that will replace Apple’s native Mail app and Messages app. Reminders will bring a big change to how you handle your notifications and messages on your iPhone.
If you do not want to reveal your email address to someone, you can hide it. There are several apps that help you to do that but the trick is that all these apps will allow access to your email address if you are willing to enter it manually. This is the reason why we created this guide.
But we don’t want to take a chance that you enter your email address and someone else manages to see it. Here is how to use the best methods to keep your email address hidden using Apple tools.
Hide My Email on iPhone without jailbreak
With the new iOS 13 update, Apple has added a lot of features and improvements to its email and messaging app. But in most cases, this update also made it more secure. Now, Apple is using secure end-to-end encryption to protect your messages.
If you do not want someone to know your password, you cannot rely on Apple’s default security settings anymore.
However, there are ways to make it a little easier. The first thing you need to do is to disable iCloud Keychain. If you use Keychain to store your passwords, your phone will automatically display your iCloud password whenever you type it in. That way, someone who is nearby will be able to see it.
However, when you disable Keychain on your iPhone, Apple will ask you for an alternative way to store your passwords. When you enter your iCloud password, the password will be sent in an encrypted form. This method allows for a more secure login process.
Note that if you use 2-step verification, you will have to enable it on the new version of your iPhone as well.
We are not suggesting that you use your iCloud password. Using your iCloud password will also expose your iCloud email address. We suggest that you create a new iCloud password if you are going to use this method.
How to Hide My Email on iPhone without Jailbreak?
The most powerful way to keep your email address hidden is to jailbreak your iPhone. When you jailbreak your iPhone, you get access to the Cydia Store. Cydia is a third-party application store that you can install apps that are not available on the App Store. In this case, we will use Cydia as a standalone application store to install an app that hides your email address.
You may already be using Cydia, but you may not know that there is a more powerful version that will hide your email address. As a matter of fact, JailbreakMe is the most powerful application to hide your email address on iOS devices.
If you jailbreak your iPhone with JailbreakMe, you can hide your email address easily and securely. All you need is a little effort. But let’s first walk through the steps to hide your email address on a non-jailbroken iPhone.
Hide My Email on iPhone with iPhone Unlocker
iPhone Unlocker is an application that allows you to unlock your iPhone with your Apple ID. After you have unlocked your iPhone, you will see two options: Hide and View Phone Numbers.
Select Hide to access the Cydia Store and download the application.
You can now log into Cydia Store using your Apple ID. If you have a different Apple ID, you will need to use the app to create one. You can get the code for your Apple ID from your email account and you will be able to use this Apple ID to log into Cydia.
Once you have logged into the Cydia Store, you should see Cydia Helper. If you do not see this, the next step will take a little longer.
Cydia Helper will now start installing the application. Wait for the installation process to finish. When it’s done, you will see the Hide My Email app in Cydia Store.
