Curtis McHale: Sign in With Apple Is a Bad Idea

You know, Curtis gave me pause: Sign in With Apple Is a Bad Idea - I was ready to use Sign in with Apple to try Readwise, simply because I didn’t feel like entering my email address and generating another password (never mind it takes five seconds in 1Password and I don’t have to remember it). But, taken to the extreme, now all my credentials rely on my Apple ID instead of an identity I control, even if that’s the email/password combo with all its shortcomings.

I’m with Curtis; I’m going to avoid any form of Sign In With… unless it’s indieweb-compatible.
