In order to change this setting and register with the actual email associated with your Apple ID, you may simply switch from hidden to visible in your Apple ID Settings:

  • On your mobile or Mac device, open your Apple ID.
  • Go to Password & Security.
  • Choose “stop using apple id”.
  • Done!

Next time you try to sign up with Apple, you will have the option to select ‘hidden’ or ‘show my email’.
