Use Disposable Email Addresses to Protect Your Privacy

When it comes to sites that ask you to enter your email address, we should all recognize International Skeptics Day on October 13. By using masked or temporary email addresses on unknown sites, you’re putting a buffer between your inbox and potential scams, spam or just relentless marketers.

I’ve used Burner Mail for many years. The Chrome extension generates unique email addresses for new sites, and I can turn off the email address if needed to protect my privacy and my inbox. Email on Deck is another great tool for an email address you need just long enough to get the download you just signed up for. Just visit the website and prove that you’re human to get a random address that lasts about 10 minutes.
