The web is a wild place, full of beasts waiting to pounce on the innocent and rip their email addresses from their cold lifeless keyboards. Make one bad move, like leaving your email address with an unscrupulous retail or service website and you could end up with a barrage of spam messages or worse flooding into your inbox. Not pleasant! But there is a way to protect yourself easily and for free.
The Receiveee (with 3 e’s) disposable email service is different from most similar services in that it offers a couple of unique features designed for getting the most value out of an instant disposable email. First, there’s no sign up to go through. Just click on the button and presto, there’s your new disposable address. 2 seconds tops.
What’s more, the service will also automatically click on activation links for you, so if you are using the address to sign up to a new web app or forum etc, Receiveee will handle all the authentication for you without you having to lift a finger. Nice touch.
The final point which is neat is the fact that this is all done via an open browser window. As long as you keep the window open, you’ll continue to receive emails to your disposable address. Close the window and the messages will all be deleted after 24 hours (during which time you can still return to the page to check for new messages).
The page auto reloads, so messages appear without your having to refresh the browser tab, and the messages are completely private so only you can read them while the window is alive. It’s an elegant, ultra fast way to get yourself signed up and authenticated to websites where you’re not sure of the security.
We wouldn’t of course suggest you use it for any place you want to visit on a regular basis, but it’s definitely a handy tool for checking out suspicious places to get more information. Nice!
