Email protection

Hi forum!

If first variant, why? What best service you had used and can recommend?

  • DuckDuckGo email aliases (free infinite aliases, tracking protection, free send feature (up to 20 mails per day), trustworthy)
  • SimpleLogin (only 10 free aliases, no tracking protection, free reply feature, trustworthy)
  • Anonaddy (free 20 general aliases, infinite username based aliases, no tracking protection, no free send/reply feature, trustworthy)
  • DNT Blur

These are not recommended providers and have numerous issues starting with that they apparently cater to racists, fascists, and other bigoted groups. See here for more info: safe?

I don’t subscribe to your ideology, which seems to be more liberal, so I don’t view it as an issue. If you take issue with the providers, don’t use them. It’s as simple as that.
