Avoid spam with a junk email address
|It happens all the time. You want to use a website, but it wants your email address before you go any further. But if you give up your main email address, you could be flooded with junk mail and spam.
With Mailinator, you can create a „fake” email address to give to these sites, without going through a long and laborious sign-up process. You could be FluffyKittens@mailinator.com or TravelGuide@mailinator.com.
|Mailinator will hold your email for just a few hours before it is auto-deleted. This way, you’ll have plenty of time to click any activation links, without worrying about junk mail. Just note that you can’t send any mail from this address.
It’s also important to note that every email address is a public inbox. Anyone who knows your address could check your email while it’s active. Make sure you don’t use Malinator for any private or sensitive emails.
