Sometimes, you’ll need to provide an email address to sign up for a service or download a PDF, but you might not want to give out your email address – that’s when disposable email addresses are really useful. Here are four different services which will disappear in a certain time!
If you’re a GMail user, then you can also use +label to categorise your emails – e.g. if your email address is email@example.com, then you can give out emails for firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc. By having a unique email combination for every website, then you’ll be able to see which website has been giving out your email address and you can use filters to get them to automatically label themselves, archive themselves or just go straight to spam.
