Rakuten now allows customers to log in using their Apple ID. This is a social authorization provider, similar to Facebook and Google. It offers a more streamlined, and privacy-focused experience.
This option is available for mobile and desktop. This is completely optional.
I don't have an Apple ID, can I still use Sign In with Apple?
- No, an Apple ID is required (this is an Apple requirement)
Why is my iPhone is asking me to log in to my Apple ID?
Sign In with Apple only works if the user is currently logged in to their Apple ID on their iPhone. They can do this from the iOS Settings app.
On non-iOS platforms (Android, Desktop, Mobile Web), the user will need to log in to their Apple ID via a web page which Rakuten will auto-redirect them to.
I don't have an iPhone, can I still use Sign In with Apple?
Yes, Sign In with Apple is supported on all our platforms (Desktop / Mobile Web / Android / iOS)
Privacy Email Address and verifying customer information
Apple ID allows customer to select "Share my Email" as well as "Hide my Email"
- Share my Email means that Rakuten will get the member's email address.
- Hide my Email means that Rakuten will get an Apple-masked email address (also known as a relay email address: e.g "firstname.lastname@example.org"). This masked email address will automatically forward to the user's real email address and vice versa.
