This is where burner emails can act as your firewall to the companies looking to spam you. Instead of giving out your real email address online, you can instead sign up using a burner email that is privately and securely forwarded to your real inbox. Every time you sign up, you simply generate a new, random email address. This means you can know which service is spamming you and simply stop the forwarding of emails from them. Let's take a look at how a burner email approach works.
1. Sign up to a burner email service
2. Install a browser plugin
Most burner email services offer up browser plugins to make it simple to generate a new email every time you are on a sign up form. They will embedd a small button on the text input that creates a new address and connects it to your real email address.
3. Read your emails like you do today. Mute the ones who spam you.
Your burner email service will now be forwarding emails to your regular email inbox. You can see which service each email comes from. If one of them starts to spam, taking back control of your inbox is as easy as muting that service.
