Temporary Email Signup Tricks To Avoid Spam
Temporary Emails: Sick of all the newsletters, pharmacies and other useless junk?
This is a trick which not many people know about. How to avoid signing up for social media accounts or any other services which may require an email at sign up and could potentially bug you in the future. Keep in mind, if you want to keep your account (and will need to log back into it
at a later stage you won’t be able to use this little trick).
It’s an extremely simple service, and it’s called a ‘disposable email address’ or a ‘temporary email address’.
Here’s a list of sites which offer temporary/disposable emails for you to use:
So basically what these sites allow you to do ( they vary a little from site to site) are keep inboxes with emails which will remain active for a short amount of time, where you can send/reply/open emails.
This is helpful to:
- Avoid spam when you’re signing up for something which you might only use the account on a once off occasion
- Keep spam out of your private inbox
- View Html securely – this means that most of these sites will help your remain anonymous so senders do not receive your IP or browser details etc.
- Test a site out before you feel comfortable giving them your real email
- Instantly sign up (unlike the Gmail, Hotmails etc.)
So if you haven’t heard of or used a temporary email, it might be something you want to test out and use next time.
It could save you time when you go looking to sign up or avoid spam on your next website find! If you’re a marketer for a business they might help you too at one stage or another.
Remaining private and keeping anonymity is becoming increasingly popular and it’s worth making sure that if you don’t want a digital footprint or sitting on a newsletter ‘list’ that you add this to your bookmarks.
Remember, your personal brand is everything – this could be as simple as your employer doing a Google Search and finding something you may not want to share, simply because you used your own email!
