Apple ID Authentication – Registration and Account Sign-In
Having to remember hundreds, if not thousands, of passwords to all software you use can be annoying and inconvenient. Your Apple ID allows you to access such services as the Apple App Store, Apple Music, iMessage, iCloud, FaceTime, Apple Pay, and other Apple services. In addition to that, you can also use your Apple ID for logging into other services external to Apple. Furthermore, Apple uses industry-standard practices and cutting-edge technologies to protect your information.
For maximum convenience, you can use your Apple ID for logging into your Route4Me account. Signing in with your Apple ID will give you one-click access to your Route4Me account without having to remember any additional passwords and while having Apple’s industry-leading security.
NOTE: Before registering for a new Route4Me account with Apple ID, make sure that you have an active Apple ID account, and the email address associated with your Apple ID is not already registered in the Route4Me system.
You can register with your Apple ID for a customized Route4Me solution assembled on the Route4Me Marketplace or for one of the task-specific pre-assembled packages. After putting together a custom Route4Me solution or selecting the preferred package, click on the Begin Free 7 Day Test Drive Trial button to proceed.
On the main registration screen, click on the Apple logo in the Or Log In With section. NOTE: Do not input your email address into the Your Work Email Address field.
Next, use your Apple ID credentials to sign into the Route4Me Route Planner. To do so, input your Apple ID username and Apple ID password into the corresponding fields. NOTE: Make sure that you are using the email address that is not already registered in the Route4Me system.
After that, input into the corresponding field the verification code sent to your phone number that is associated with your Apple ID (Apple two-factor authentication).
Next, click on the Trust button if you don’t want to be asked for a verification code next time you sign in using this web browser.
After that, read the displayed privacy information provided by Apple and then click on the Continue button to proceed.
Next, you can edit your Apple ID user name that you want to be used for your Route4Me account and choose whether you want the email address associated with your Apple ID to be shown or hidden for your Route4Me account:
- Share My Email: Your Apple ID will be linked to your Route4Me account, and the email address associated with your Apple ID will be displayed in your Route4Me Account Settings;
- Hide My Email: Your Apple ID will be linked to your Route4Me account, but the email address associated with your Apple ID will not be displayed in your Route4Me Account Settings.
After that, use the phone number that you want to link to your Route4Me account for receiving a verification code and then input the received verification code into the corresponding field.
After you have registered your new Route4Me account using the Apple ID authentication, you can check what contact details are displayed in your account’s settings. To do so, go to Account Settings from the navigation menu and then go to the Your Details section.
If you used the Share My Email option, the email address that is associated with your Apple ID will be displayed in your Route4Me Account Settings. The phone number displayed in your Route4Me Account Settings is the phone number you used for Route4Me’s Phone Verification.
If you used the Hide My Email option, your Apple ID will be linked to your Route4Me account, but the email address associated with your Apple ID will not be displayed in your Route4Me Account Settings. To learn more about the Hide My Email feature for signing in with Apple, visit this Apple Support Page.
