MailDrop is an open source disposable email address website for when you want dummy or fake email address. You invent and email address on the frount page and then it takes you to an inbox where you can receive messages sent to that address. There is no expectation of privacy when using MailDrop. Any message sent to MailDrop can be read by any user. Every inbox on MailDrop is available to the public. There are – by design – no security measures to sign into MailDrop and view e-mail messages.
MailDrop is a great idea when you…
…want to sign up for a website but you’re concerned that they might share your address with advertisers.
…are required to provide an e-mail address to a mobile app that shouldn’t be sending you messages.
…are making a one-off purchase from an e-commerce site where you don’t want followup spam about their “latest deals” in your inbox.
…publish your e-mail address in a place that it could be picked up by address-harvesting spam bots.
…give your address to companies that have a track record of less-than-stellar security.
