It’s foolish to reveal your real email address just for the sake of signing up to yet another forum, newsletter or web service. You can use Anonymous email addresses for one time signups, evaluating offers, accessing newsletters or ebooks, downloads and other random stuffs.
We have earlier discussed a few websites to create anonymous email addresses. Here is a quick recap of some more.
The Best Sites to Create Anonymous Email Addresses
Dispostable: Create Unlimited Disposable Inbox
Dispostable let’s anyone create a temporary email inbox without any signups or registrations. You pick a username and the inbox is created instantly. After that, you can share this inbox with anyone and any email sent to your address will land here. The inbox requires no password and you can create as many inbox as you want.
Note: Do not share the same inbox with multiple persons because anyone knowing the Dispostable email address can check the inbox right away.
