Proxy-email or email alias is similar to forward email address: all emails sent to proxy-email will be forwarded to your inbox.
You can generate unlimited amount of emails at @proxiedmail.com (like email@example.com) and all sent emails to the proxy address will be forwarded to your real email like a firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, you can turn off forwarding from this proxy-email or change the pair of proxy-email -> real email address.
I can use my plus sign (+) trick to create unlimited email addresses, why do I need ProxiedMail?
Email subaddressing, often referred to as the plus (+) trick, gained popularity through services like Gmail and is supported by certain email providers. It allows you to generate additional email addresses by adding a "+" followed by a unique identifier to your existing email address. For example, if your email is email@example.com, you could create addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org for Facebook or email@example.com for Groupon.
While this technique offers convenience, it does have some drawbacks:
Inability to reply from the + address: When using the plus (+) trick, replying to emails will reveal your real email address as the sender, potentially compromising your privacy.
1. Limited support on websites: The plus (+) trick is widely known, and as a result, some websites do not allow sign-ups using email addresses containing the plus sign, restricting its usability.
2. Privacy concerns: The plus (+) trick does not provide comprehensive privacy protection. The additional identifier (+netflix, +olx, etc.) can be easily removed, revealing your actual email address. If any of these subaddresses are exposed in a data breach, it is likely that your primary email address could also end up in the hands of spammers. Services like "Have I Been Pwned" can help you check if your email has been compromised.
3. Linking of + addresses by advertisers: Advertisers and data collectors can potentially associate the various subaddresses you use with the plus (+) trick, allowing them to create a profile of your browsing history.
4. In contrast, ProxiedMail proxy-emails offer an alternative without these downsides. For a detailed comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of using the plus (+) trick versus email aliases, you can refer to the article "What makes email alias a better alternative to email plus sign (+)."
