What is temp mail?

  • Temp mail is a service providing unique temporary emails
  • The emails will self-destruct after a couple of minutes or hours
  • It is used to hide your real email when signing up for services
  • Temp mail is also called disposable email or throwaway emails

 

By using temp mail you get a free temporary disposable email. This can be used to sign up for services or promotions without giving out your real email address.

For the user it can mean less spam and advertising, and more anonymity and maybe less chance of getting hacked.

For the service provider though, it means that they have no control over users creating multiple accounts, etc. If they give out trials or free stuff, by using temp mail, a user can get unlimited emails and free stuff.
