    Apple ID
    If I visit apple support page and have a question, then there's a possibility to ask from community. But the page asks from me my apple id. What happens after that? Will be my apple id seen to anybody? Or how it works? Usually in forums there are usernames. If any site asks my apple id, will it be the username there, or how?

    I would assume it's just asking you to log in to the forum to post [just as you have to log in to any forum to post] -- if you check out any Apple forum thread the posts show user names just like anywhere else. But if you're not comfortable entering your Apple ID for some reason, I suppose you could contact Apple Support to ask how it works.

    Have you entered your apple id to anywhere? Apple id is a name or any kind of word itself, right? The problem is when I bought mac and the seller created it to me, he didn't explain much how will I use the id and asked my email and asked is it OK to keep it as my apple id. Well, now that apple support asks my id and I'm afraid that my email will be seen to everyone. That's the problem.

    Yes, your Apple ID can be your email address. You may need to enter your Apple ID and password when you use the App Store, and apparently you have to sign in with your Apple ID to post on the Apple Communities forums.. https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT202659 https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT209030 I don't see anyone's email addresses in posts on those forums, but I don't know any more about how that works. A search turned up this old post [from 10 years ago] on the Apple forums: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3883268 There are plenty of Apple help pages about Apple ID.. https://appleid.apple.com https://appleid.apple.com/faq https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201356 https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203993 If you have questions about using your Apple ID you should contact Apple tech support or customer service.. https://www.apple.com/contact/

    The O.P was wondering if any posts he made on that forum would reveal his AppleID, but it looked like posters were identified only by their usernames [as on any forum]..
